Scan my arse — 20 Comments

  1. Why oh why did you go the windows route in the 1st place – have you learnt nothing man?

  2. Simple…  I have an old copy of Photoshop there.  I like, and am used to Photoshop and am not that fond of Gimp.

  3. We have a photoshop shop at Poitiers, but I am not sure if is is an old copy, or not.
     
    As for Gimp – wasn’t that the nickname of Pres Raygun ?

  4. Best thing you can do, Grandad, is to disable the automatic Windows updates which are a pain in the fucking arse! That way you can do it manually when you want want to check for updates and download/install them – stops the tail from wagging the dog, so to speak. 😉
     
     

  5. AGrandad –  Damn it! If I had know you lived in Poitiers, i could have saved myself a fortune booking a holiday near there this year.  You wouldn’t have minded lending me your place for a few weeks?  Of course not…..

    Welcome Barking!  [Or is it just plain Spider?]  In fact all the updates were for programmes and not Windows itself.  Windows can bloody well fend for itself.

    Cat – You have my deepest sympathies.

  6. Surprised Kirk hasn’t weighed in on this one yet Grandad. There’s nothing he likes better than running Windows into the ground!
    I’m kind of with dessiegie that you should have known better – Although I have to admit I use Windows too for the myriad of programs that don’t run on anything else. Causes me a lot of pain, but I have to deal with it.

  7. Denise – Kirk has been somewhat conspicuous by his absence all right.  As regards using Windows, the number of updates shows how long it is since I used it.   I think the last time I fired up Windows was about three months ago?  Kirk would be proud?

  8. Tried Linux, strictly for nerds, cant run half the programs I use and as for ease of install forget it. Tried Macs expensive, and cant run stuff either. Tried Windows great installs fine runs everything I use, could be why it has something like 90% market share

  9. Sounds like Herself has figured out how to keep you busy and out of her hair. Clever them Herselfs. Tomorrow she’ll have some audiobook in a weird format she wants you to convert to Standard Mandarin.

    Your every distant swearword is her reward as she pours another Pimms.

  10. Neelly – Go on outa that! Strictly for nerds?  Even Herself is using it and swears by it [quite a lot, actually] and if she can use it anyone can.

    Con – Hah!  She can ask what she likes but I ain’t using Windows again…..

  11. How dae ye get that line thing to go through the words instead of shoving them to the side like my line thing does?  (and makes a mug of tea,) Jist askin.

  12. Welcome Masel.  What line thing?  Do you mean this line thing?  I just use the little button at the top of this box [marked ABC].  My technical advisor [hah!  Fucking eejit more like] tells me it can also be done by typing <strike> before a word and </strike> after it.  Is that what you were asking?

  13. A thousand pardons for my absence of late. I’d say my ‘conspicuous’ absence but I can’t spell ‘conspicuous’. We’ve just remodeled my wife’s quilt shop and when I wasn’t been working on the project I was catching up on chores at home. Either way I’ve been paying for it ever since (physically–can’t make the climb to the computer room or if I do I can’t get down again).
     
    Now just to satisfy the good Lady Denise…
     
    Not too sure why you felt the need to boot into Windows unless you’re into self abuse? You certainly didn’t need Photoshop to scan a picture. Kind of like using a bulldozer to plow a flower garden? I can empathize though as I think it’s a matter of guilty conscious you see. Microsoft has had us PC users so conditioned over the last 2+ decades or so, (not nearly as bad as Apple brainwashing but still…) that we feel we must keep the damn thing around even though we don’t need it any more. I’m guilty myself although I keep it penned in a VM where it can’t get out.
     
    Alright then, I’ll slip back into my comspic conps conspicio absence.

  14. Kirk M – Very tardy attendance record, I must say.  And your excuses continue to deteriorate.  The reason I went into Windows is that I wanted to use that Photoshop thingy and it normally speaks to the scanner with no problems.   I got it to work before but I can’t remember how.  I was reluctant to change back to Linux because Windows takes a fucking age to load up, and I didn’t want to have to go through that too many times.  Make sense?

    As for typing “<strike> before a word and </strike> after it. ” feck that. Things are bad enough here in the pea sea dept.

  16. OK.  There is a wee box that asks for your name.  Right?

    Under that there is a wee box that asks for your mail address.  Right?

    Under that there is a wee box that asks for your website.  Right?

    Under that there is a light grey strip with little buttons on it marked B I U | ABC | and a couple of others.  Right?

    The ABC one is the one I’m talking about.  Right?  Right.

  17. All that and you don’t bother crossing anything out…..    *sigh*
