Scanner Recommendations?

I need a good scanner that will take a stack of paper and scan it. I have a lot of screenplays (some kind of curled on the corners) that I want to scan in so I can get rid of the paper copies.

Any suggestions?

You can check out this listing at pcmag.com. One tip -- make sure that the document feeder really works. We have an HP 4100 multifunction printer/scanner/copier at the office. The document feeder will pull 2 or 3 pages at a time, totally screwing up the scan job. It is extremely frustrating.

It may be hard to confirm this if you are buying on line, but -- trust me -- it is worth finding out.

Another option is to just have Kinko's do it for you. If this is just a one time thing, it may be cost effective.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
