lol scanning that whole box would take yeeeaaarss...
Im still like 1/3 of the way threw the 710 FSM.
scanning to PDF is invaluable cuz its out there for everyone and preserved like it should be.
but god is it tedious hahaha
Tedious is the word, also to not destroy the books I preview, crop, and then scan one side then repeat preview and crop and scan the other side upside down and flip the image later. The scanner will only do 600dpi and the grayscale contrast sucks (freeby all-in-one canon piece of crap). The scanner sits right next to my chair, so I've been throwing it on to scan while on the web, letting it scan and then go through and do the opposite page when it finishes.
The sick thing is I'm actually looking forward to scanning more when I get home...fricking datsunitis
My estimate is .5 years or so at a book or two a night to do the whole box non-destructively
