Yeah.  I got back with the pictures and have my card reader plugged in, and 
sure enough, here's the magic mountie thing in /etc/mtab:

/dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 vfat 
0 0

Which reminds me that I need to figure out where this magic mountie thing is, 
so I can fix it where it doesn't use utf-8, SO ALL MY FILENAMES DON'T END UP 
IN ALL CAPS.  THIS IS ACTUALLY ANNOYING, and there is some warning...

FAT: utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT filesystems, filesystem will 
be case sensitive!

Something to sort out one day when I'm more bored even than how bored I am 
just at the moment.
