On getting a scanner
July 9, 1998
Well, my brother brought home a scanner from my father's office he wasn't using anymore. I came home and my brother was attempting to install it.
He said he couldn't get the system to recognize it. I poked around for about a minute, then asked him if he had put the adapter card fully in the slot.
He paused, then laughed and said, no he had forgotten that...
After opening up the computer again, I couldn't help but laugh at the pitiful attempt my brother had made to install the adapter card. It was an isa card, haphazardly shoved into a slot meant for a pcmcia card... but IT WAS NOT REMOTELY CLOSE TO BEING EVEN NEAR THE SLOT.
Well, the point is that now I have a scanner and I can put up all kinds of neat stuff. Look for useless updates this weekend full of pretty pictures you don't want to see
