Eee to the rescue.

For the past several days I’ve been feverishly working on my document scanning project. I’ve been able to blow through several piles of bills and other papers. This project is going a lot faster than I thought, although there is a whole lot more for me to scan.

The scanner I am using is an old HP ScanJet 4200c I got for free. It’s probably not the best choice anymore for photos, but for documents it works just fine. Its main problem is that it will not hook up to my Mac mini. Apparently, the USB port is not a real USB port, but some sort of Parallel to USB converter, with no Mac drivers. However, it hooks up to my Eee just fine, so I’m able to work without shelling out money for a scanner.

Once my documents are out of the way, I’ll have to step up on the uncluttering part. I’m having separation anxiety trying to get rid of my beloved gadgets.
