My flash still works

I was worried a couple weekends ago (down in Winchester) that my external flash for my camera might have bitten the dust. I tried using it at the cathedral to take some pictures, since it fills the distances so much better than the itty bitty built-in flash, but it wouldn't work. I swapped batteries when I got home, but it still wouldn't work, so I was worried it was done for. I then tried charging my batteries, but my battery charger wouldn't work here, even with the adapter thing to convert voltages. A few days ago, I finally got around to buying a battery charger, charging up all my batteries, and testing the flash with them. It works! I'm so relieved, I'm quite content with that flash, and didn't really relish the thought of having to buy another. They're not cheap.

That said, a more powerful flash would be nice for large buildings, and ETT-II support would be nice too... but, I must behave. I've bought enough toys since I got here, getting my life sorted out. Computer and decent speakers for music are so essential to my comfort and relaxation... a new flash, not so much.
