So, I just got the quote from Canon to fix my camera and it's not too bad. I should have it back in less than 7 days. I'm looking forward to having it back though I must say I'm a bit nervous since the charge doesn't include any parts so it seems it's a software issue? Either way, I hope Canon's work is guaranteed
Other good news, my brother is now Doctor Cooper! I got to sit in on his defense today in Charlottesville and while I didn't understand most if it, I enjoyed watching AJ give his presentation. He is an excellent speaker and handled himself very well! Congrats AJ!
