Nerd Joy!

We’ve been scan­ner-deprived for many months now, because the mul­ti­func­tion print­er gave up the ghost. We acquired an old­er mod­el HP scan­ner via Freecy­cle a while back, but it wouldn’t work. The mov­ing bit inside had been locked down for trans­port, and just wouldn’t unlock. It is nev­er a good thing when you get a burn­ing smell out of a piece of com­put­er equip­ment.

But Sam attacked it with screw­drivers and pli­ers and brute force tonight, and made it work! Squee!
