This week is just not turning out right. First the dread call, next the barrel of my canon IXUS broke with an E18 error which is quite painful. Thankfully I have warranty on it. The lens mechanism is apparently quite fragile as I have come to find out from various posts.
Hope to get it fixed soonish. Not feeling like spending any money since I can see big expenses in the horizon. Save me from the clutches of the lawyers.
