Data recovered  
I'm very happy that yesterday I was able to recover all the photos off the memory card. I don't know if doing the eraser trick on the metal plates worked or if if the printer I used has was more sensitive. Whatever the case I moved everything to Chris's computer then I will delete the memory card and trash it. As for the camera I have not yet tested if it still works or if the battery will charge. Recovering the photos was more important and I did get some great pics that day. I will upload those soon once I get them on my laptop. I had photos on there all the way back to Nov as that was my primary camera til I got my new on for Christmas.

And I'm happy to have started writing Fear's Lost Memory. A bit odd that I'm writing that before To Vanquish Fear as that one comes first. Perhaps I can work on both at once. Perhaps it's because I can release the lost memory story without too many spoilers while To Vanquish Fear has huge spoilers for FBTF.

I have seen the replies you guys left here. Thank you. I will catch up on those soon. I'm behind again.

I had some bad plant losses over the winter like always. This time due to lack of light and drying out. I need to do better next winter. I lost all my N. Khasiana which is horrible. They are a super easy plant. It's endangered and the only nepenthes from India. Nearly all the original venders I used to buy from are gone so this species has become near impossible to replace. My lovely large N. bicalcarata bit the dust. That was the snake fanged pitcher. I was so proud of that one. Terrible just terrible loss. I still have a small one. Finding replacements will be hard. And a few others that the losses have sucked so badly. I've sent out emails to some vendors but gotten no response from all but one.

So good news and bad news. That's about all.

I'm so glad that you recovered all your photos! Old Flame taught me the eraser trick. He has some advice for your camera. He asked if you had covered it in rice? About the battery, he said it should be sealed but the contacts might need cleaning once the camera is dried out. I hope these suggestions help! It's lucky you got a new camera for Christmas!

I haven't read all your Fear stories. I must get to that when I have some spare time.

I'm sorry about your plant loses. I always lose a few over winter, too, because it is dry and cold. I loved your fanged one (bicalcarata) and hope you can get your little one to grow big this season. That just sucks that the other one is so rare.

I'm very glad too. I had some nice pics on there. Never heard of the rice thing. The battery does have corroded contacts. I can see the rust from the salts. Not sure how to go about that.

Oh ok. When you have time then. I haven't posted any written stories yet but hope to get started on the second story today.

I hope I can get some decent replacements for my plants. I'm trying.

They do the rice thing with mobile phones. If you can get at the contacts I guess you could try cleaning them off somehow.

Hope to get to your stories one day.
