Only 2 years for an iMac to quit?

Unreal. At just two years old, my favorite piece of equipment has failed. I'm lucky I backed up the 12,000+ images I have, but if they can't recover them, I may have lost a few recent ones along with recent documents. I'm also really glad I bought the Apple Care protection plan - I'd hate to try to fix this myself.

Lesson of the decade: back up your files, no matter how good or new your computer is! You can bet I plan to enhance my backup routine, that's for sure.

The Canon G15

Just a couple months ago I traded up from a Canon SX10is to the newer G15 for my portable carry-every-day camera. At 18MP and with 1080p video, it's a great little shooter. It also pockets well, has a flash shoe, and shoot RAW images; all requirements for me.

So far the images are great, and I'll soon post some samples. Great camera!
