Alright, I've started the scan of 'This is Animation - Macross no. 2' but I've been having a hell of a time trying to get it done. The loaner scanner I got is an HP Scanjet 8300 and the full driver/program is one of the most useless programs I've used in a while. I hope I can get this one done around Friday next week if I can keep the scanner from crashing every 4 pages.
My main scanner's power board is toast. There's a chance I can get a replacement part but it may be quite a while.
Sorry about the lack of other updates as well, I'll try to get a couple books I found up tomorrow.
