Scanning Fever

Been spending most of the evening scanning old photos. Found some negatives from my Peace Corps days, and have been using the scanner's built-in film loader and excellent software to make those digital. It's a long process though, about 15 minutes a strip (5 frames), but mostly automatic.

In other toys news, when the CD player in the car stereo broke, I replaced it with the one I'd pulled out when I "upgraded" to HD radio. It has a USB port, which I thought was for something non-audio, but turns out I can load up a thumb drive with MP3s and it'll play it, displaying title and album info. Kewl. Only thing is it can't handle a full 1GB drive, it takes forever to read it, so I've stuck with my favorite 6 Jimmy Buffet CDs' worth on one drive, and found a 128Mb one which has Wicked and Avenue Q. Sounds almost as good as a CD, at 320 kbps. I'm impressed.
