What was the problem you were having with it?
Almost every picture I take comes out really blurry and I even have it set on the Pets and moving subjects setting

Can you make a Flickr account and upload some pictures there?

Cameras attach data to each image telling you how they were shot and this is what I would like to see(called EXIF data). Upload the images then link to the account. Coming out really blurry is weird, I looked at your tank profile and I assume that picture was taken with the canon?

Any modern digital has image stabilization I am wondering if yours got turned off somehow on the camera. It might not be noticeable in well light areas, but is going to show in low light, especially if you don't have a steady hand. Putting the photos on flickr will help alot, pick half a dozen to upload if you could and it would be great if they were taken under different setting like auto, motion, pets, macro, ect. I don't care if they are blurry. Flickr will keep a lot of the data your camera tags the pictures with so I should be able to figure out if anything is way off on the camera, like the stabilizer being off. Wouldn't be the first time I have seen someone say that their camera takes crappy pictures when the photos clearly show exposure or some other manual option has been messed with.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
