Be back soon

I've been out of town for the past couple weeks for the holidays. I've been having fun shooting footage with my new HDV cam. Got some nice shots of my wife's aunt's wolves, and I'm going to Georgetown today, so hopefully I can get some cool shots there.
I'll be back soon.

OK people, this is a warning to all out there who shop online for cameras and equipment. DO NOT SHOP AT BESTPRICECAMERA.COM!!! I just got my HDV cam today, and found that they had decided, in their infinite wisdom, to "upgrade" me to a less desirable package deal. I was charged almost 300 bucks more than what I was supposed to, and I was not given everything I had ordered. I looked these guys up on's review page and I found that there are TONS of reviews with similar stories. Also, they apparently use more than this site for their company. There's a few that are all fronts for these bait and switch jokers. And their customer service is a joke. The guy actually asked me what I was "bitching" about, since I was still getting "a good deal". Classy and professional, huh.
The lesson here is, when ordering over the web, do as much research as possible. You can never have enough info on people like this.
I'm hoping my credit card company will be able to help me out with this. I'm not giving this camera back to them just to have to wait over 8 weeks for my real order.
Infuriating! Mr. Mcgee has made me angry, people. And he isn't gonna like me when I'm angry.
