photo storage while travelling

Well my family and I are going overseas for three weeks. We are going to Europe, mainly France and I am planning on taking heaps of pictures (obviously)! I have a 512MB memory card, so I could take around 3000 photos with all the low quality settings but I really do want to have good quality photos. Does anyone know of a way I can back up my photos as I go?
I have an iPod video so I could get the photo thing for that but I really dont want to unless I have to.
Should I just buy a few more memory cards duty free?

take spare cards and a reader. I always travel with my laptop and bought a small lightweight laptop for that reason. memory card reader so I can copy the images from the card goes with me and pictures stay on the memory card until we return and I can get a backup of the laptop then I erase the cards.
Other options incluse e-mailing those to yourself or storing on a web site or vpn back into your home system and copying them over.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
