How about a compromise.

If I promise not to forward to that Lech, Ha Ha, would you consider PM"ing me a shot of your wife at the beach?

Just a thought
Yup and nope, respectively. Sorry ;-)

Guess I'm a bit of an obnoxious tease.

Have Funds,

We're both a little amazed that it happened at all. I think she said I was in the right place at the right time, and I was persistent. I've never thought I was particularly good looking. Not bad, but certainly not in the top 25%.

Just lucky I guess Hey REW and ex-Jarhead, I am shopping for a
scanner today. I was hoping they would be cheap by now and it appears
they are. One very large computer store said they don't sell plain
vanilla scanners any more. Anyway, I am pumped. BTW, I am pretty
sure DW would have words along the lines of C-Ts wife vis-a-vis
posting her photo. But, with a scanner, why I have a plethora
of possibilities. Ain't technology great?

I saw a few scanners last week at garage sales for under $10.

Re: I thought I'd post a Picture of my Wife in her Swim Suit.....

I got my 1st scanner last week from freecycle. The guy said he was getting rid of it because it was slow. I just needed it to be able to scan in documents so I could fax them via my PC. For now it will do the job.

It was 100% free and no gas was used as I picked it up by bicycle.

I've bought 'em and resold 'em. Most everything I buy at yard sales, flea
markets, etc gets resold. It's a good thing because DW buys at
about every one she sees and some of the stuff will be around here
forever. Anyway, I will pop for a new one as this is an important mission

Re: I thought I'd post a Picture of my Wife in her Swim Suit.....

Well folks............I apologize. I promised photos and have spent
an ungodly amount of time trying to provide them with no success.
I have given up, and if I had a nine iron handy the odds are good
that I would destroy this electronic satan. Hell, I'm a
closet
Luddite anyway. I shouldn't even be using a computer.

I gave it my best shot.

Let's review here:

BTW, this is not a tease. Once I get set up to post photos (if it's easy) you may be sorry the gauntlet was thrown down. OTOH, some of C-Ts stuff is real nice. Hope I can keep to to the standards he has set for me JG

Photos will follow, one way or another. Remember, everything I say is (by definition) a promise. JG
So let me get this straight, JG. You passed up a guaranteed successful $10 deal at Kinko's in favor of spending three times as much money (and gosh knows how much more time) to admit failure.

- Is this what the NRA considers your "best shot"?
- What exactly were you promising to accomplish?
- What part of this scanner saga requires a 170 IQ?
- Could any of your fellow Mensa-ites help out, or do they have lower IQs?
- Are there any franchises near your house that can show you how to pop a photo under a scanner lid (kinda like a copier machine found in any of your former businesses) and produce a file that can be burned to a CD or even a diskette, and posted here? Or do they not have the requisite IQs either?
- For the price of a few stamps (less than the $30 AND $10 prices quoted thus far) you could mail those photos to me-- or just about any of us-- and we could hook you right up. Or is that too technical for a "closet Luddite"?

Re: I thought I'd post a Picture of my Wife in her Swim Suit.....

I never had any luck posting a pic either. Can someone give a step by step lesson on how to do that here? Seems like I read that the file cannot exceed a certain size. How do you reduce the file size? I promise it will be worth your while. I wanted to post a pic of a couple of New Orleans refugees on the beach in Destin, FL 2 days before Katrina hit.

Good question.* The easiest answer is with the least futzing is... Photobucket.*

I've stumbled on a MS Photo Editor setting or two but I'm looking forward to hearing the detailed procedures from the experts!

Re: I thought I'd post a Picture of my Wife in her Swim Suit.....

Better option than a scanner and fiddling with resizing photos (for current material) is to buy a crappy low resolution digital camera for $15-20, take your photos, upload them to the computer with the good old USB cable, and post them.

If you've got windows XP, the software to grab photos is built in and easy enough to use that I taught my computer illiterate mother in law to do it in 5 minutes.

Otherwise you'll have to use whatever s/w comes with the camera.
