    Wow.

    "My father observed with pain the alteration perceptible in my disposition and habits and endeavored by arguments deduced from the feelings of his serene conscience and guiltless life to inspire me with fortitude and awaken in me the courage to dispel the dark cloud which brooded over me."

    Remember when writing like that was considered a good thing?

    Shoot, now I'm curious as to what my Kindle would look like on our scanner.

    The results... probably wouldn't be pretty.
  • That's a book what I done read recently.

    Tre got me curious enough to try scanning something with an actual LCD screen.

    ...not the best, though I'm surprised it's actually readable at all

    whoa.  I wonder what causes the banding.  Probably subpixels.  If you can do a color scan, how does that turn out?

    That is a color scan. For some reason the color didn't really come through. *shrug*
  • Sup bitches, witches, Haters, and trolls.
    huh.
  • there is a light that never goes out
    nice to see you have my thread bookmarked

    That IS odd.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    The light and dark show because of how much light is being projected from the screen into the scanner, but the colours do not register.

  • "Jake, why is my picture in black and white?"
    "I don't know, but it pales in comparison to the problem of you looking like Sasuke!"
