F#%*ING F%$^ING F^*$ F#@$


So I took a bunch of pictures today on my trusty old POS digital camera. I plugged it in to get the photos off to share with you fine people. I was also making dinner. I got up and pulled the USB cord and it took a tiny little spill of about 2 feet. I thought it was nothing but its making whirriing whinning noises and the lens wont retract and I get 'lens error' and 'there is an error with your USB device' and I can't get it to do anything. I dont know if they even make cameras that take these memory sticks anymore and I want my freakin' photos!

Anyone tech savvy? 'cause I'm about to start smashing things with hammers.

Even if you can't get another camera that takes the same memory stick, you should be able to find a 'reader' so you can retrieve the photos you have. All is not lost. Probably.
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
