Getting There

Made a Fry's run after work, got the mounting grommets for the LEDs, and a hard drive and DVDRW drive and mouse for the soon-to-be-built spares computer.

Got home to find the new Vista-compatible scanner on the patio. Downloaded the latest drivers & software, hooked it up, and it runs like a champ. Fast, sharp images, no hassles. So add an working, but not with Vista scanner to the spares pile.

I'll probably get around to building the spare PC in a couple of weeks. If you're interested in a fairly powerful home-built computer for about $800, let me know. Basic infoCollapse )
