OK - just a very small question. On the S2 Pro, there is a little plastic cover which clips over the LCD (for viewing photos taken). I know that this thing is going to fall off and get lost any day now, and wanted to know if anyone had some way of not losing this part.
I know it should really be on some type of hinge, but was thinking of glueing some thread on it and attaching it to the camera body.
Has anyone come up with some clever way of keeping this thing safe?

I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in
Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode.
I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped
into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:
This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.
If the picture taken from digicam are ok when viewed from a computer, the lcd viewer has a loose connection or defective already, if you can open your unit, try to disconnect and reconnect the lcd flexwire inside.
It could be a faulty memory card. Or maybe dirty contacts on the card itself. Try swapping cards with a friend or your local camera shop and see if it works then. Maked sure the card is correctly inserted too.
If the card formatted in the camera it should be OK. If it was corrupt it would show up during format.
I hope you didn't buy the card off Ebay through an Asian or Chinese dealer. They are conning people with half a gbyte card marked as one gbyte. Some of them are reworked so they show the full Gbyte but when you go to format them they crash when you try to use them.
Anyway it should be under warranty so ask for an exchange or even a different brand.
My S2 is on its second out of warranty CCD, and Fuji replaced both for free, the first was due to the same dead CCD as many has had, the second was due to the CCD being defective to the point of being off center and producing photos that had a very distinct leaning to the right, Fuji did not charge me for either CCD's, and if the tech said otherwise, if I where you, I would call them back and say you belong to many on line forums, and have read that Fuji is replacing them at no charge, its possible that the rep you talked to is unaware of this!
That is another point, make sure you talk to an actual camera tech, and not just a rep, the rep will probably give you the run around.
