I haven't posted here for a long time, and about eighty percent of the reason for that is the lack of a scanner that works with Windows from 7 to 10.  But the rest is laziness and some distractions.
The latest distraction is definitely cutting into my lazy time.  I've been sick.  So I'm blogging elsewhere for a few weeks (or months, possibly).

Here is my Caring Bridge page, if you want to know what's going on.

And here is some info on lung carcinoids, for the curious.

The good news is that carcinoids in the lungs are pretty straightforward to treat, with a high success rate.  In other places, they are more problematic, for example as Steve Jobs had in the pancreas.

So wish me luck and I'll get a scanner as soon as they'll allow me to lift one.

Finally got the space bar screwed down and now I can enjoy using one of my favorite machines.

Surprise addition - The Swinger!

Yes, I'm still using the cat tower for photos, because it has the best light.

cleaner and coming to life

See how nicely those have been preserved?  only the two on the right end show much grime. Action is still a bit stiff but with some oil drops here and there and just typing on it, that is improving.

SN is 1A-1918923-12.  it looks very similar to the 1941 gallery, but presumably they didn't change much during the war.  I'm surprised there are SN's for the war years at all, frankly, but I guess donations didn't cover every need.
I just need to get a new ribbon in here and use it some more.

In other news, I was outbid on an Olivetti Lettera 36 electric portable.  I only tried for it because of the floating keyboard as seen on the Praxis 48.
