Ok, there's a chance that I might be uploading just model sheets for a while. Turns out my scanner at home is acting up. For the past 3-4 years, I've only been scanning b/w line art. No problems...I do a color scan last night, YELLOW STREAKS!

Not good.

I go under the hood, do some quick canned air, streaks gone, but now the colors are off!!! I'm gonna try a detailed cleaning of the mirrors with proper supplies and see how that turns out. If that fails, until I get a replacment, I'm forced to scan on my lunch breaks at work, and I'm not to fond of carting cels around =(

BTW, its a HP Scanjet 5p, about 7-8 years old, so it maybe time for an upgrade.

A decent scanner doesn''t cost much, and will almost certainly last you for another five years of your cel collecting before it''s life expires. But yeah, you''re right, technolodgy DOES ''suck.''

infact most of my daily stresses are inagurated by things like photocopiers faulty servers etc, it''s all the time. Screw Bill Gates man!

It''s not that bad...Friday, May 12, 2006 - 12:34:56 PM

Kaminari- point taken. Though, I thinks it''s worse to have something not-function than to not have one at all...Your cels are great, I''m only ''pretty-ing'' mine up cuz they''re so lame.

setsumei- yeah, i could do that, my frustration is that tech seems to always fail when you need it the most...besides, it still works, just needs a good cleaning, IMHO. We''ll see.
