Post Cruise Temporary Insanity

Link: http://www.microtekusa.com/smi320.html

The post-cruise temporary insanity has hit me.... :crazy:

I just ordered a new flatbed scanner....the main feature, Digital ICE.

Built-in DIGITAL ICE Photo Print Technology repairs damaged photos
- Automatically restores damaged photos
- Identifies and eliminates unwanted surface defects
- Easily corrects deep scratches, cracks, creases, rips and tears in photo print surfaces

I bought it impulsively over eBay, before seeing that it could be had cheaper through other means....which is also significant, because Discover is offering 5% cashback bonus for online purchases right now. Though the thinking is that there's a cash balance in my PayPal account, and I don't quite see it as the same as actual money...because pretty much the only way to spend it....is to buy something from eBay.

Hopefully, I'll at least still qualify for the current $20 rebate promotion....or maybe it doesn't matter.

I got the scanner, because I've been expected to reproduce a number of photographs from the cruise for family/relatives....I think in the end, it'll have been cheaper to order reprints aboard ship....but the key is its my money that is being spent rather than the family/relatives that want the reprints. Maybe I should've ordered the reprints then....too late now.

Now I do have an old scanner, but it has always been kind of iffy since I upgraded to XP....and I'm hoping the Digital ICE can cope with the fingerprints on the pictures....

Next on the related purchases, will be to get more ink for my printer.... :lalala:

Good news.

Found a $20 rebate check for the scanner in my mail box today.

Or was it….

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
