I hate it when this happens. My waterproof, shock-resistant, protective cushioned cover Samsung Galaxy 5 - didn't.

In other Tech Fail news, the ShagCam installation was showing it's age with periodic hallucinogenic color shifts across the deck and lake. Jeff brought an upgraded camera to replace the primary lake shot, and we decided to see if we could initiate a second ShedCam to monitor the winter snows on the the roof.
