Back from Harrisburg

I had a great time in Harrisburg with Jennifer from Jennifer D. Wade Journal. (We went there as a result of an exchange of comments here.) The planetarium show was fantastic, and made me realize something about space I never thought about before. The rest of the State Museum was pretty neat, too. Harrisburg itself, a city I haven't visited in 22 years, was fun. We drove through a 30 mile wall of fog to get there. But I'll tell you about all these things later.

When I got home I dropped my digital camera and cracked the LCD screen.

Oh, the camera still works. I can take pictures, and I can pull them off onto my PC. I can aim with the viewfinder window. I can even zoom blindly if I feel daring. But for the most part, I have no more control or fuctionality than I did with an inexpensive film camera.

I sent a note to Nikon asking how much it will cost to get it repaired. I'm betting it will be cheaper to get a new camera. Which I may have to do before next weekend's Felberpalooza.

But, hey, it's not that bad. Really.

This is bad.
