In other news - I still don't have a new job.

However, Radio 4 has taught me all about gastromancy - the art of taking the spirits of "angels, daemons and faerie" in through ones backside, into the stomach and then...

Well, actually that's when I got out of the car, but as the program was about ventriloquism I can only imagine puppets and apparently inappropriate relationships between men and toys are involved.

Totally unrelated question for you (sorry):

Have you ever had any problems with compact flash cards, ie. them not working, giving you errors etc? What makes of CF cards do you use?

I've recently started using a couple of Lexar cards, and 2gb cards while previously I mostly only ever used SanDisk 1gbs. Now I've tried putting the SanDisk ones in to use and I just get errors and can't use them. I've tried reformatting them on my small cheap Coolpix camera and also on my computer (Nikon's tech person told me to do that - although then someone on the Nikon yahoogroup told me we shouldn't do that!) and reser the file no. seq. but they're still not working. Searched online and found a bunch of people have had similar problems, although still not really sure why it's happened. Wonder if the Lexar has made my camera not want to accept SanDisk anymore. Just seems weird that they were always ok until I recently used Lexar. I'm just hoping it won't happen again. Bit worried incase I ever get to a gig and try and take pix and find my cards/camera won't work.

Do you know if any local shops check cameras for errors?

Sounds really odd - have you tried the http://www.dpreview.com/ forums?

I use SanDisk cards mostly now but have a couple of smaller capacity Lexars for "emergencies".

For repairs/checks I use Lehmanns in Stoke who are very good but not the most convinient.

I've never had my own problems with CF.

The dpforums came up when I did a search for the compact flash error readings. There was a thread about similar problems. Thanks for the Lehmanns link.

I've never had any problems until now. Wouldn't mind if it was just one card, but about 6 or 7 different 1gb SanDisk cards that I put in won't work now. :-/ They work on my Coolpix camera but not on the D1X.
