cinco de mayo
Happy Cinco de Mayo to me.
Also. Happy Birthday to Me. :)
I'd love to post somethin' about how different it feels to be 23, but it all sounds trite, so fuck it.
If there're any NYC slashdotters out there readin' this, we be gettin' drinks 'round 10 tonight at Bar 81 (aka "the Verk" - 7th street between 1st and 2nd aves, right next to Blue and Gold.)
Just ask the bartender to point me out - I'll hopefully be the one at the center of the colossal drunken roaring. :)

All right y'all. You call yerselves geeks? This is your chance to prove it.
In an ill-advised bout of christmas cheer, my girlfriend has decided (over my not so strenuous objections) to take me to England in January. To celebrate, I've decided to get myself a digital camera but have absolutely no idea as to where to buy from, what to look for or how much to pay.
CHEAP. I can't stress this enough. I know ya get what ya pay for, but I'm looking for the best deal for the least amount of money. I really can't afford to spend more than $150 on this piece of tech, and even that's pushing it. (this isn't including any external memory cards, though it'd be REALLY nice if it came with one instead of relying initially on built-in storage. More on that in a sec)
Once that's out of the way...
Ideally, this little gadget would have a physical zoom (instead of an optical one) and an LCD of some description. I'd also like a way to download my pics from the camera to my iPod. As far as I know the only easy way to do this is via CF with a reader attached to the 'pod. This is managable, but I'd like to not have to pay more for an extra memory card, ie, I'd rather it have no interal storage and an included CF card (or, of course, both) rather than it just coming with internal memory.
This seems to be the best deal I've found so far, but then again, as I've said, I have practically no idea as to what I'm talking about. :)
C'mon guys: What're my odds of finding exactly what I'm looking for, and where should I do my shopping?
