The Saturday Grind

It heartens me to see things like young people utilizing various means of self-propelled wheeled transportation and hurtling themselves places that they shouldn't be, as per the laws of the land, and even better if it's a handrail on the steps of the Supreme Court of New York:

But then again, everybody knows that the Supreme Court of New York is actually the least powerful in the court system. It's the Appeals Court where the real power lies.

I forgot to ask him his name after I gave him my card. I did say that I wouldn't put the picture up if he didn't want me to. You know, maybe people don't want pictures of themselves breaking the law splashed on the internet. Then again, I don't think he's in much danger of being seen on this site. Besides, it's not like I'm the next Glen E. Friedman or anything.

I actually have another decent action shot that I took. So why isn't it up?

So for getting my negatives to the camera and into your hearts, I scan them. I was using a Hewlett Packard G4050 at either 1200 or 2400 dpi, 16 passes, using VueScan software. But lately I was thinking that I wanted to upgrade my scanner situation. So today I brought home a Epson V750 Pro, with bundled Silverfast software. and you know what?

I think I'm going to return the darned thing.

Maybe I'm just not knowledgeable enough about scanning or software and stuff, but it seems like a greater hassle and much more harder to get simple things done than with VueScan, which for some reason isn't recognizing the V750. And as I've been printing out my stuff on a newly purchased decent enough photo printer, I'm realizing that maybe this new scanner wasn't really necessary. Fortunately B&H has a 14 day return policy, so there's plenty of time for me to either figure this out, or somehow figure out how to get this back in the box in some reasonably similar fashion in which it came.

Okay, the Project Runway season finale is about to come on.

No really, I'm straight.
