Yeah, that lotsa-pics mode came in very handy on my trip, and also at the concert... It was so hard to keep the camera still.... no image stabilisation for me!
I had no idea I could take so many pics in a day, before I went on the trip last year... now I know that the important thing is spare batteries, more than spare memory cards!

Oh boy, I can't wait to hear this... is it as bad as Street Missions?
My camera apparently has some in-built image stabilisation thing, thank goodness. My worst problem, though, is that I have a tendency to lower the camera down far too soon and blur it anyway. It's one thing to correct for shaky hands, but if I'm putting the damn thing back in my pocket quickly, not much can be done there ...!

I've been meaning to order in some USB batteries - they recharge by plugging into a computer's USB ports. I'm sick of buying new batteries.

And Street Mission is quite considerably superior to the demo Twilight. Though easily U2's most laughable song is a little number called Tonight from their April 1978 demo session.

OK, 11OTT/Touch is sent, now Things To Make And Do and J. Swallow are going through. TTMAD is the only instrumental U2 has ever played live, and J. Swallow is another good laugh.

I feel it should be a children's show tune. You know with the choppy lyrics and "happy" vocals.

Received.

11 O'Clock Tick Tock was horrid, I'd heard it before. Glad they got it down by the time they played Red Rocks.

This is my first listen of Touch.

My camera's battery is one of those lithium ones you need to take out and put in a re-charger thing... I need to get a spare one though.

Pre-Boy U2 =

I love Babyface

I'd love someone to try to figure out half the lyrics to that song.

The worst U2 songs:

10. Red Light
9. Love Rescue Me
8. Babyface
7. Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World
6. Ultra Violet
5. One
4. In A Little While
3. Stuck In A Moment
2. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
1. Elvis Ate America

The demo Twilight is much better than all of those.
