How to Crash iPhoto

At least, with my digital camera and my copy of iPhoto...

Download one whole bunch of photos from camera. Camera automatically turns off after a while, probably due to "lack of activities". (???)

iPhoto crash.

Luckily, OS X is still alive and well. All I have to do is restart iPhoto, do the whole download again (USB's speed is getting on my nerve.) And pressing the "forward" button on my camera every minute. (That last part is not fun. But I don't feel like turning off the auto-off feature of my camera.)

Dan Gillmor: I wish Google had more spine.

John Hiler: Google is powerless to do anything before [DMCA], without risking its entire business on unproven legislation.

Does anyone has any pointers on how to teach somebody the concept of "drag and drop" over the phone?
