    Which bungling buffoon was responsible for these rather incomprehensible & confusing "instructions" for upgrading the firmware on my camera?:

    http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/f/finepix_f300exr/fupd.html

    ALL they had to say, was "download the DAT file, copy it to the root of the SD card, insert into camera, power up with full batt & holding down [DISP], and do the upgrade".

    I often wonder about the thought patterns of some people... :confused: :D

    Probably translated by a computer from japanese.

    I love the flow charts with arrows!

    Those instructions were easy enough to understand.

    Really? Okay. They weren't and aren't, and as a designer of devices, I am telling you that stripping things down to only the absolute essentials is vital for clarity and transparency. The fact that you said easy enough, just shows there is an element of confusion and ambiguity about them.

    As tempted as I am I'm not going to remove the OP from my ignore list, again...

    Listen, dude - honestly , just get over it. Noone is getting stressed here, you just need to pull your head out of the internet a minute, and look at this in a life perspective... because, let's face facts - it's not important, and noone even cares.

    Look around you - this isn't even REAL - it's just a scattering of pixels on a screen, representing nothing more than illusion of something that doesn't physically exist. This is not a "community" - a community has 150 or less people in it, who genuinely know & care for one another, in the PHYSICAL world.

    You are of no relevance nor meaning to me, and your drama queen antics are purely laughable. Ignore me if you wish, like it makes any odds to me :p

    Thanks for the laugh. For some reason the song "Hokey Pokey" was running through my head while I read that. :D
