This is a shot taken way back in Nov 2006 at the Brisbanites Anniversary Flickr Meet at the Pavillion, West End.

    I did indeed Greg, although WinXP doesn't want a bar of it. I installed the latest Ubuntu Linux, and used XSane.
    It's slow, fiddly, and has it's quirks, but more importantly, it works! :)

    that's excellent.

    hp5+ in 1+100 rodinal sure makes for grainy goodness

    It sure does, but I didn't really expect anything less with 400 film. :)

    Mind you, it took a lot to get the scanner working. Having just re-installed my PC, I didn't have a linux install on it yet. Figuring I'd give Ubuntu a go, a first had to download it, then I discovered my cdrom drive was not a happy beastie anymore and so after trying various scsi cdrom units I have lying around the place, I ended up having to take the dvd-burner out of it's external enclosure and install it in the PC. Then, having got linux installed, it was a fairly simple job of firing up XSane and it saw the scanner straight away, although I've noticed that if you do a preview scan, it won't do a proper full scan afterwards. Bit annoying but I can work around that, and it's nowhere near as annoying as having to do this stuff under Linux and then boot back into Windows for photoshop. But all in all, it works and I'm a lot better off for it :)
