KiteCam update

I'm a bit disappointed with the response to my appeals for donations to buy a new camera. It rocketed all the way up to 7.60 within a day, but now it's sort of frozen! Thanks to everyone who's donated - I can nearly afford a disposable camera now! :)

I passed Dixons today (a highstreet electronics retailer in the UK) and noticed that they were offering 50 off a new camera if you traded in your old one. The notice said that the traded in camera would be destroyed immediately, so I asked if I could trade in a broken camera. I was told, "It has to be sort of working." That's bizarre. Surely it won't matter if they are going to destroy it? Anyway, why do they destroy it and then give you 50 off? Weird.
