It's just the display that is broke so the pictures are safe but it's killing me that I don't have them. I'm a freak about backing up and burning disks of everything, but I didn't save these yet.
I know what you mean. I have found that those little usb thumb drives are great for backing up pictures easily and quickly, easier anyway than burning a disc. I have an 8 GB one, and as soon as I get the pictures from the camera onto the computer, they go on the usb drive too. Plus those little drives are getting really cheap now. And easy to slip into your pocket and take to a friends house to show the pictures.
But how to get your pictures when you can't use the display? Some laptops have a video out jack, and you can hook it to a TV and use that as a monitor. Maybe would work to get your pictures?
Congrats on the Iron Man finish by the way.
