With Much Sadness

It is with much disappointment and sadness that I must write the following.  I copied this from my Project 365:

So, here I am in the Rock Your Camera class and what should happen? I am sure you can camera is broken! Yes. Thank goodness I decided to jump on the wagon and get my first assignment done...kind of. I spent the evening on the phone with Canon. My camera kept giving me this error message about my battery. I did some research, to discover that I needed to update my firmware. So, I did. Now, my camera will not take a picture, turn on, nothing. I was informed by the nice man at tech support that I could send it in and get it fixed for a starting price of $190 or just go straight to the customer loyalty department and upgrade my current digs. I decided to do what Dave Ramsey would want (and Taris) and pay the small fee to hopefully get it back and working. I am just praying to have it back in a week so that I don't really miss any of my class. The problem is that I am going to be out of town all next week and really wanted to take my camera with me to complete my assignment. Oh well. Here is hoping that the issue is an easy fix.

Stinking Canon! My came back fixed at a small fee of $250. I am sorry to hear about your photography loss this week.
