DEATH OF A MEMORY CARD.
The second PNY Technologies 2.0 GB SD memory card I've had since getting my Kodak EasyShare C643 Zoom digital camera died on me yesterday.
It died in the same way as the first one, which I had for only 2 weeks before replacing: I took about 5 or 6 pictures in a row, and, when I tried looking at the pictures, the camera said "File format not recognized", which happens sometimes when it auto-trashes a picture, so I turned the camera off and when I turned it on again, I got the digital camera equivalent of the "Blue Screen of Death", asking me to format the card, which does nothing to revive it.
The first time, it could just have been a dud card, but, since it happened twice, I'm a little concerned that it might not be a problem with the card but rather the camera.
And these things are $60 to $70 Canadian, and I'm not all that sure that it's still covered by warranty (and, even if it is, I'm not sure if I still have the receipt).
By the way, yes, that is indeed supposed to be the version of the Grim Reaper from the Cartoon Network show, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. I originally considered using Momo, the cute grim reaper-equivalent girl from the anime Shinigami no Ballad, but her character design is much too complex for me to draw her properly in MS Paint (I mean, I'm sure I could do it, but I didn't want to spend all of Easter working on a single picture).
