Bruce -Try here.
Keep in mind, the purchase must be made by Jan 31, 2004. The winner will be announced "on/or around February 4
So while you may be tricky and win the $1K monthly prize and then buy batteries, if you were to win the $10K then you must have already bought something.
I'd still take the $1000 monthly prize and then buy some batteries.
Also keep in mind, they will withhold the taxes on the $10 - for prizes it's 50% withholding I think - so you may not get enough for that 1Ds. But, you could donate the $$$ to me, and I'll worry about it!
