Yeah, well, things are tough all over. What prompted the freak-out?

The goddamn scanner. Can't live with it, can't live without it. It's complicated.

Was it the classic of scanning a lot of stuff then closing the program only to realize that it closes all scanned instances in the photo editing program??? or what was deleted?!?!?

PS: It looked like the kind of reaction the CIA guy must have had when he by accident deleted the evidence of the weapons of mass destruction.

It was the not so classic "Why does the scanner always ignore my selection and then autonomously decide which area it wants to scan at an 11 degree counter clockwise angle???"

And why, oh why, does it jump back to "black and white, 150 dpi", when I always, always, ALWAYS want colour?!!!!

Yes, I've tried changing the preferences to "do not automatically set the output type after selection". It still thinks it knows better than me.

One day I'm going to pay a little visit to the Hewlett Packard guys with a 12.7 i feltaffutage, I'm telling you. "They will pay... With rivers of blood."

Also: Punching the bookshelves a lot really helps build up the cartilage between those knuckles.

That's like when Photoshop consistently chooses b&w in some mysterious aspect ratio as the default, even though I always choose colour. I suggest padding the bookshelves.

It's in Lasse's blog.

The scanner does exactly the same when I use the PC.

In my job I find myself humming the tune from Rawhide.

bradley knew that the chances for a clean bill of health were slim at best, but he'd worked his way out from worse spots than this. losers give up hope and bradley was anything but a loser.

the surgeon walked in with a grim expression.

"well, brad, i wish there were a way to cushion this, but i can't think of one ..."

"just tell me, doc."

"the exploratory revealed a dull patina across the entire surface of the kidney ... what we're looking for, what we NEED is for things to be smooth ... and ..." the doctor trailed off.

"and what, doc?" bradley's voice was hoarse and twisted. the hammer was about to fall, he could feel it.

"in layman's terms: things are tough all over."

for the first time in 25 years, bradley burst into tears. he mumbled into his sleeve. "oh my god. oh my god. oh my god."

The name "Bradley" really says it all.
