thought this might be of general interest so I'll ignore the admonition
to respond privately:

for self portraits, you might find that an air bulb release is more useful
than a self-timer.  I have one with perhaps thirty feet of hose.  
(Mine's a Rowi, and pretty nicely made).  It's easy to hide the
hose for self portraits.  Watch out for cheap ones - the bulb
will split after a little use.
