Modern Day Oracle

I need an oracle.

You know, one of those divine people or objects that gives people, 
who travel to see it, 
wise answers to questions.

Oracle comes from the Latin word "oraculum" which is from the verb "orare" which means "to speak."

In ancient Greece there was the famous Oracle at Delphi where the God Apollo supposedly spoke to his priestess, giving her divine answers and prophecies. 
In reality, I think there was a gas leak from this major crevice she sat over. 
It put her in a trance and made her speak in a trance. 
But, she was consulted on all important things.

In Tibet they still have oracles, and the Dalai Lama still consults the official Nechung Oracle.

And then there was the Octopus Oracle, named Paul, who lived in Germany and predicted the winner of the 2010 World Cup.

I need something like that.

In other words, I need answers.

Preferably not trance-like lunatic ravings of a weird priestess...or an old Tibetan monk or an octopus...

Maybe Annie could be my oracle?

Or my frog plant pot?

One of my burning questions right now.
Driving me crazy.
I can't figure out how to solve the problem.
I've tried everything.

Why won't my computer recognize my camera when I connect them?!!!

Have you tried going to Canon's website and downloading a driver?
