Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 11/3/2015

Got all my newsletters scanned, except for one I couldn't find to scan. Hopefully when I start scanning all the historical books on the shelves, that stray one will show up. I saw a pretty cool book scanner yesterday that was, while not cheap, not as expensive as some of the high end ones. It is a Fujitsu scanner that scans from above, and, according to the blurb about it, recognizes when you turn pages, Because you're holding down the pages when you scan, there is also a sofware fix to take out the *fingers*...  however, I believe that a nice piece of non-reflective glass to hold down the pages should fix that. I have an old HP scanner (no longer working)  that has a glass piece in it that should work nicely. 

I timed how long it took to do a double sided pages scan of a newsletter with approximately 30-35 pages. Took about 5 minutes for the newsletter and then another 3-4 for the PDF software to straighten pages, do OCR, etc. 

Incidentally, here's my logo for support for Bernie Sanders. 

The Case for Bernie Sanders-Rolling Stone

Sanders is a clear outlier in a generation that has forgotten what it means to be a public servant. The Times remarks upon his "grumpy demeanor." But Bernie is grumpy because he's thinking about vets who need surgeries, guest workers who've had their wages ripped off, kids without access to dentists or some other godforsaken problem that most of us normal people can care about for maybe a few minutes on a good day, but Bernie worries about more or less all the time.

Christian "Sharia"

 Bernie Sanders on guns- read the comments.

Research? What research?
