    i know there's a joke in there about being charged and not being delivered, or being delivered but not charged or something.. oh well..

    that sucks though, nothing worse than waiting for something, then when it comes you can't get it :(

    ouch - least he spoke to you in person - ours just runs away before we ever see him - and charges extra (£1) for the privalage of not delivering our mail - a real pain when postage is out by something like 10p!

    Camera batteries cost a fortune? Only if you insist on brand name ones! I haven't ever paid more than $10/battery...

    Still, it sucks you didn't get them today

    The brand ones would be around 60 EUR.
    The ones I bought from a good battery maker (Ansmann in Germany), cost 16 EUR each.

    So I ordered 2 Ansmann and 6 even cheaper ones to complement my existing 2 Canon and my other 2 Ansmann, giving me 6 rather reliable durable batteries, and 6 which will survive maybe two or three tours. And those 6 extra I only need for tours where I might not be able to charge for 2 or 3 weeks.
