    So i go over to my friends house with my school's rebel xt. We're all sitting on the couch when my friend Mike decides that he would pick the camera up and mess around with it. That was fine by me. I just figured he was looking around and seeing how it worked. A few minutes of this goes by and he hands it back to me.

    mike: "here ya go. I formatted it."
    me: "oh swe....wait, you did what?"
    mike: "formatted it...ya know, so it'll run faster."
    me: ".........you just deleted 200 pictures dude." (i'm not sure how many of them were keepers...but still)
    mike: "....no i didn't. I form....dude don't joke with me."
    me: "im not. try viewing the pictures."
    mike: "it says no image"
    me: "good job...."

    NOTE TO SELF: never let mike touch camera again.

    Well something like that.

    i know...so does the rebel.

    he's one of those people who doesn't read things before they just hit "ok"

    im not sure. i hadn't had a chance to put them on a computer. Everytime i plug the camera in it just sits there flashing "busy" and never picks up a signal. I need to get a card reader...

    Anyway, I plan on revisiting the most important places that i've shot at the past few days sunday when i go out to find more places.

    Got chased off some property today by some dogs...that was fun. O_O

    Either that, or take a film camera over there and let him format that till the cows come home.

    Despite being a film guy I can safely say I know how you feel, I had close five hundred pictures formatted into oblivion with out my permission all in one shootin match once.
