I might have lost my mind and impulse bought this scanner tonight after work.




Was on sale for $69.CDN at Staples. That = $23.47US I think.

$23US? Even when the dollar was really bad it wouldn't be that low. Nah, it should be something like $50 US ... it actually could be better, the CDN $$'s doing rather awesomely lately.

oops. Maybe you were kidding? I'll shut up now, if you were. heh.

And dare I add that it's not just 0.80$ but 0.84. The highest it's been in 12 years. Crazy talk.

I've been looking for about a month with no luck.
I walked into Staples downtown [have you been to the new one on Burrard yet? You'll shit yourself!!] to buy bubble pack and sharpies....I'm going back soon.

Oh, pretty! And that's a damn good price for a scanner. That's what I got mine for, if I'm remembering correctly. Did you take it home and pet it lovingly and move stuff around to find a place for it and admire it? *g*

squeee! It scans negs and slide too!!!

I sat it beside me on the sofa while I watched tv and we bonded. The furniture moving shall probably commence on Friday night and last through the week end I'm thinking.

Dakota's decided that the box it came in isn't interesting enough for her / to her liking though, which is unusual since she crawls into anything made of cardboard.

So Critter, while I have you, you ready to earn some cold hard cash for a few hours of work? I'll even feed you!

ahahahah! YES. It canna be this weekend, though, since the Infant is moving back and so I'll probably be engaged doing that (oh what fun). After that, though, there's nothing on the schedule, so I'll be free for whenever you like!

I can so totally see that. And it scans negatives and slides? That's so COOL! I had no idea scanners could do that!

Dude. I really appreciate the help/tutoring/hand holding!

I had no idea scanners could do that!

Hey sweetie.
I found it at Staples. Do you have that in Puerto Rico?
I found this web site when I googled the model and brand of scanner I bought [hp scanner 3670]

http://www.imprimindo.com.br/hpscanner3670.htm

I haven't set it up yet but I think it's going to turn out to be a good purchase.
