    can I ask a camera question?

    asking a camera question, cause I know many here are pretty camera savvy. I tried uploading my camera disk in to my new computer, it does nothing. seems it isn't set up for Windows 7.

    recipe question..oven fried chicken...

    I came across a recipe a while back for oven fried chicken where you use instant potato flakes to coat prior to putting in the oven. I can't remember if the chicken was rolled in egg first, or what. I have tried searching, but my pokey dial-up is giving me misery. I do know it's instant...
