To follow on from my previous post about OpenStreetMap I have on the hunt for a digital camera. The idea being that I take snaps with the camera of street signs, post boxes, churches and other landmarks then marry the timestamps up with those from the tracer when I get back home so that I can label the map properly.
I didn’t want a brand new one because it’s going to take a bit of rough and tumble with me on the bike and stuff; Vicky’s is, well, just that – it’s Vicky’s, and if I break it then she’ll have my balls
So I went on an ebay hunt and got pipped at the post on a dubious purchases. I sulked on one of them as I took my eye off the ball.
Late on I decided to send a cheeky email to Hull Freecycle asking if anyone had an old one collecting dust somewhere.
And, do you know what? Two people replied. Curiously both from Driffield. I collected from one of them, who happens to work at Hull New Theatre this tea time – and he brought not one, but two. How kind is that?
