    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

    In old-style apothecary measurements, ʒ = dram (or drachm), ℈ = scruple, and ♏ = minim. :-}

    [edit] The only problem I can see with apothecary puns is I think I just made most, maybe all, of them.

            Metric? Boo! (B)

            Get thee to an apothecary.

            Metric is for the robots. They should have made it base 16 at least. But humanity needs (and loves) the dozen, and all its dirty fractions. Feet forever! And inches, if you don't mind. (I mean, just ask any guy if he'd mind having a few more inches to play with)
