Update on JVC GR-D30US camcorder
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at 6:11 PM (Pacific)

It's...back. Yup...see previous post...I mailed this camcorder back to JVC under its CCD program:

Customer Notification/Customer Notice Regarding Camcorders VHS-C and Digital Camcorder CCD Program

I was almost afraid to open the box. Then I thought, what the hell. It's long been out of warranty. If it doesn't work, I haven't actually lost anything.

It works now. Or at least, they fixed what was wrong with it. I turned it on, opened up the LED's great, it works fine.

Let me add that JVC was utterly mysterious about this entire process. I had enclosed a letter in the box with my name and phone number on it (somehow expecting a call one way or the other). When I heard nothing, I checked the JVC site and found a record of the repair...but it wasn't exactly written in English.

On the Repair Tracking screen, it said the camera had already been shipped. No indication as to whether it had qualified under the CCD program, nor whether it had been fixed. There was a handy tracking number on this screen so I knew when to expect the delivery. Also the job number, which I used for the Order/Invoice Inquiry screen.

Here I discovered the status of the job was REPAIR SALES. lol! I hoped that meant it had been fixed.

Anyhow, let's see how this thing holds up now!

Born Today

At first you're thinking, bleh, the shtick here is merely a list of people who were born on, or who died on, a particular day of the year. But it's a great site. The people are interesting, the quotes not the usual run-of-the-mill, the pictures are good...all in all better than most quotations sites, better than most celeb-type sites.

Not that I'm actually going to come up with a site tomorrow, but here are the sites for today.

I found this site while looking for a VIN decoder. There seems to be an enormous collection of stuff here though, including archives dating back to 1998.

Parts Heaven

What's charming here, besides the Wrecks of the Month, is that animated gif on the welcome page. I could not have done the animation better myself. You never see this sort of thing's all been sanitized, it is all mass-produced and soulless now, so yeah it was refreshing to see something handmade on the Net.
