Can I get a moment of silence for my Control Panel?

Thank you.

I decided to launch another offensive on my Powershot problem. Apparently I’ve still got Canon drivers installed somewhere, so I wanted to try again to completely remove them. When I plugged in the camera and tried to open the Control Panel so I could get to Scanners and Cameras to remove it, explorer.exe crashed on me. After a reboot (and repeating this process 2 or 3 times), I decided all is lost. I have no idea what’s wrong with it - there was an error message the first time it happened (some missing DLL, maybe), but who the hell reads those? Looks like I’ll be re-installing XP AGAIN.

Either way, I found that Picasa does a pretty good job of importing photos from a camera, so I’m just going to use that from now on. I’ve been mounting a share on my desktop from my iBook and copying photos through the Mac, but it’s just a pain in the ass. I import everything into Picasa anyway, so it makes more sense to just start there.

Now, I just wish Google had bought Flickr so I could upload photos from Picasa. Stupid Yahoo.

Also, my two free Pro accounts have been claimed by Jym Bob and Sarah, respectively.
