It's Official

My scanner is dead.

I just downloaded new software and new drivers. I eagerly awaited the opportunity to click on the scan button and....nothing. I now have a delicate, fragile paperweight. It wouldn't even be a good paperweight in a decent breeze.

*Heavy sigh*

After buying the water heater and paying to have it installed, I don't have any money to buy a new scanner. Time to sell some stuff as Dave Ramsey would say.

I have some very nice trade packages to show off too, including my second ever silk card. I just KNOW you want to see that.

Maybe we could have a garage sale this weekend....


  1. What's going on with it? I might be able to help unless it's a mechanical/power thing, which means it would officially be dead.

  2. I know this is borderline sacrilege, but selling some cards might just do the trick, especially since they sell scanners online... where you can pay with PayPal...

    I'm not telling you to up and part with your collection by any stretch, but selling cards has gotten me out of a few jams before. Besides, you can always buy them back again later.

  3. Cal, I think it's a mechanical thing. I was having problems with it before it quit. It wouldn't reset after scanning and I would hit scan and then cancel before it would reset. It isn't even a year old, but I guess that's the way it goes. Beardy may be right, I might have to sell some of his cards to buy a new scanner
