BMI 25-Pack DVD+R In Spindle $7.97
I hope technology never ceases to amaze me, both in terms of how quickly it progresses, and how prices go down after new and amazing becomes old hand.
I still remember the first time someone showed me a DVD... then I found out about "burning DVDs at home" and now even that sounds incredibly affordable!
May be enough to get me burning DVDs!

It's the Olympic time of year.
It doesn't get much easier than this:
Got some digital pics you've been wanting some nice quality old fashioned PAPER photos from? Well, Click Here and print a coupon for 25 FREE digital pics from your local target store (not valid online) then take you digital pics on over and get prints without waiting for them to be shipped, much less paying for shipping.
From what I can tell this set of free prints is truly free.

First a quick note to acknowledge I have been ROTTEN about answering e-mail since April, and for that I apologize to anyone who accounts for 1, or more, of the 900 messages in my inbox. I think I'm going to pick a day and just attack the blasted inbox until it is a reasonable size. (Empty.)
Second... pictures are now available for download as well as ordering prints! In celebration of this new level of availability a lot of pictures are available at "discounted prices" compared to the prices we intend to set and keep as of Oct 1.
Sale Prices are:
Screen Res - $1.50
High Res --- $10.00
We are currently planning to set/keep regular prices at:
Screen Res - $2.50
High Res --- $15.00
Web Backgrounds are priced at:
Screen Res - $4.00
High Res --- $10.00
We are significantly discounting the State Capitol pictures with hopes that will make them more accessible to school age children...
Screen Res - $1.00 (the lowest price we are allowed)
High Res --- $3.00
I hope all that makes sense.
