Well, that's just it - after setting it to 400, and getting the right exposures, tried 200 then 100 and they were both right too. So it's rectified simply by setting to ISO400 and taking a couple of snaps.
Well, this is one out of the box - and one to remember. Weird.

Especially since it didn't work... (see sig) I put it into C R Kennedy's Adelaide office for it to get repaired last week, and was exceptionally lucky to get a K100D as a loaner.

New moon, are you daft!?! Stop reading HP Lovecraftt. You sacrifice a chicken on the new moon and a goat and an ocelot every second full moon that falls on a Tuesday when the month ends in R.

Just what are you trying to unleash on the world?

I stand corrected, I presume you do the sacrifice walking three times around the goat Widdershins wearing a Phrygian cap and jackboots.

OK Ill stop now....

Okay. While I realize you guys (Cideway, GWP, & Steve) are just joking, one still has to wonder why you would be this aware of ritual goat sacrificing and why all this would be running inside your obviously strange little minds. Hummmmm.

Okay, you caught me. I might as well confess it all. I didn't read every page of the owners manual, so missed the part about the goat sacrifice. But even more shameful, I don't even have a goat. Can I use my neighbor's cat this time if I promise to have a real goat by the next sacrifice? Never liked that stupid cat anyway, so the ritual will be done with some gusto.

I would attempt to find a virgin to sacrifice, but everyone knows how difficult that can be today. A young lady old enough for the ritual and still a virgin is often scarier looking than the masks associated with the ritual itself.

Oh, my. I best stop before women readers decide to burn me at the stake.

There once was a girl named McGinnity
Who until the age of 12 kept her virginity
And that is quite a record for this vicinity
