Maybe you should just donate your equipment to the local community college, have a yard sale or load ebay up. This just might be a stupid hobby/ business for a grown man. I have been trying to decide if I really need a high resolution scanner. Finally I decided, yeah I need one. I just am not going to be able to use low res files. SO... I go on line and do my homework. Now I'm not going to be making images for the Paris Hilton bunch so even though I'm looking for a high res not one that isn't reasonably priced. I'm also not going to be in any big hurry to get things done, so I don't mind scanning half a dozen at a time. So I decide on the $189.99 7200 scanner. I have their flatbed and its cool. I have a very old minolta that is a pain in the butt, one frame at time and then take out the holder ect. Okay so I go to order it yesterday. Everything is cool till they get to the last key stroke... then they toss in a $15 shipping fee. Now I said, not just no, but hell no as I cancelled the order. Now I'm thinking I don't even need the damn thing. Of course I tell my wife and she says the obvious, you are not going to buy a 200 dollar scanner for a 15 shilpping fee. I didn't bother to explain that the scanner was only 189.. She had made her point but I was adament. aka hard headed and angry. So today I made some quick print tests and decided Yeah I need the scanner. So low and behold I find the scanner, no shipping, for the same price.. Different seller. I go all the way through the sale to the bitter end and they accept pay pal how wonderful. I can sneak it out of my bank rather than have to see it on the credit card statement. I am making the very last clicks to pay for it and ......... you guessed it .... No not a shipping charge even better....I can't rememeber my paypal password.... Now the order is in limbo since it shows that I have paid but paypal says not you haven't.... I have a email to customer service in at this time to try to get it all straight. But I really think it is an omen, I need to make a donation of the cameras and take up knitting.
