Camera dead, but would you believe my luck

[ #33695 ]

My trusty old Canon Digital IXUS II bought in October in 2003, suddenly started acting up. The display on the back would be black or show a black with screen weird colours.

Turning the camera off and on would sometimes fix the problem. You could still take pictures, but in the end that stopped working too.

I have for sometime wanted to buy a new camera, but I was sorry that the trustworthy old IXUS was b0rken.

My wife took the camera to the shop where we bought it to inquire if what a repair might cost. The clerk asked if we had a extended insurance.

And guess what.

I signed a extended insurance eventhough I normally do not, but this was my first digital camera and I asserted that it was somewhat at risk.

So today I am going to pick it up, yay!

The story of my extended insurance for my SMEG refrigerator is completely different and has convinced me never to sign these extended insurances, but I must admit that I feel very lucky that I actually did this for the IXUS.

I also have extended insurance for my MacBook Pro. but not for my PowerBook, guess which one is not working :-/

but I am getting my IXUS back today, yay!
