After a few minutes of playing around, I think I just threw up.  ;)

I spent part of the day driving the nephew half-way back to his house in S.C.   I exchanged him in West Columbia...   Thank goodness for fine weather in both directions..

They had to send my camera back to Nikon...   I feel so naked.....

My condolences.  Is it still under warranty?

5yrs old..

I'm sorry.  Peachtree has their own camera techs.  Do you know why they're sending it off? 

pcb board... image compression

Shanon from P'tree said they could fix it, but they didn't have the software to adjust the camera back to specs after that install...
So they sent it off...
.

And now it is stuck at Nikon until I can find a bill of sale...   I'm sure they are doing their job, but I bought the camera here in the US of A and not in some grey-market business...

Sorry about your camera.

My list of things that last 5 years is very short.

I'm out on the deck figuring out my new/used D80 Nikon..   Pretty nifty.

I'm out on the deck figuring out my new/used D80 Nikon..   Pretty nifty.  

It is the same and yet quite a departure from D70S..  the controls are the same but it seems to be way better in some aspects..?

I know the D90 is out there, and I hear that it is going to be upgraded, but I have a year left on this D80 Warranty, and I'm going to put it on my calendar.  I don't know what I'm going to do with my D70 when it comes back from repair...?    Keep it or shoot with two camera's two lenses..   Sometimes that makes sense, but not usually..

The placement of the buttons have changed some and they are not immediately coming to my fingers, like the D70...

Thank goodness for the internet there are several users guides out there for this camera.

The first thing I noticed is that the D70 with a 4Gb Flashdrive holds 1100 pictures in fine/.jpg and the 4Gb SD chip that is in the D80 will only do 544 fine/.jpg pictures.

Here's two things that just baffle me.

At ten till 9 on a Thursday night 30% of the houses on my street have their garage doors open and no one was in the garage.  Granted it is a quiet neighborhood but crime and home invasions do happen.  Why make it any easier?

Our cleaning lady empties the garbage as part of what she does.  For some reason the garbage doesn't go end up in the big can, she takes it with her.   ???

Sounds like you're making it easier for her... to steal your identity.

:o
Enough of that is probably out in plain sight already.  And the financial stuff is in a trash can she doesn't empty.  She did "borrow" the bag to the vacuum cleaner until I told her to return it.

We had a previous cleaning lady that stole some strange things.

Our housekeeper is incredible. She will do things like polish all the silverware on her own. Once she got discusted with our drawers of clutter and totally organized the whole mess. She comes every other week on Friday and it is amazing how better our lives are because of her. Also she is one of the nicest people I know.

I got into dutch with the wife yesterday over my cell phone.  I'll admit I'm not very attentive to it; sometimes I forget it altogether, or forget to turn it on, or to recharge it.  Yesterday I was travelling around town and the phone lost its signal.  This has happened before because I get no warning.  The phone doesn't beep or anything to let you know you are offline.  While I blithely went about my business FG was trying to reach me to no avail.  I didn't notice until the evening, and then the only way to get it working again was to turn it off and then on again, whereupon I found several messages.

Anybody else have this happen?

sounds like the cell phone is not funcitning properly. It should pick up signal automatically without having to reboot it!
