  3. Bill,
    Just another success story for the International Brotherhood of Electronic Wizards.
    About a month and a half ago my wife and I were on a cruise and our relatively new Nikon DSLR camera took a bit of a tumble after a particularly strong wind gust that blew the tripod over. I was immediately sick. I got home and got a quote from Nikon to repair the camera. They wanted $300 to repair it. This gave me the guts needed to open a sensitive electronic device like a DSLR camera. Turns out the only thing wrong with it was a ribbon cable that had jumped out of it's connector on the main board of the camera and needed to be plugged back in.
    I told my wife I fixed it, and she could not believe it. I said "this is what happens when you tell a member of the International Brotherhood of Electronic Wizards that something will cost $300 to fix!".

    73,
    AE5CP - Billy Hyatt
