I have in front of me one of the most complex and baffling assemblages of technology ever created. A thousand or more confusing options and choices are presented to me at every turn. It's also delicate and fragile.
I speak, of course, of my first digital SLR.
Fortunately it has an idiot mode, which I learned just well enough to show that I can take bad pictures even when everything but the inevitable human element is automated.
Perhaps I will learn to download them to my computer today.
