Scanner Repair

Last week the scanner went on a trip that damaged the transparency light connector. I found a new 8 pin mini-din connector at Altex Electronics, and some gold plated female socket pins at Fry’s. I spent about 6 hours tracing connections and breathing solder fumes. I can once again scan transparencies and negative (I haven’t needed to yet, but that is not the point. I had to make it work again.

We found the crib we want, and have agreed on a bedding set called Sunshine, I may get out of this without painting the nursery, again. No trucks and planes for us, we going with Pink Girlie ™ stuff.

A smashing 52-21 victory for the longhorns at Chapel Hill. Our favorite quarterback Chris Simms has managed to finish two games without an interception. I am genuinely impressed with his performance. I will be Mr. BBQ, this Saturday at the Houston-Texas game. Is 2:00 p.m. too early for a 7:00 p.m. game? Hook-em.
