I hate to go off-topic for a moment, but I can't resist here,
I am very loyal / pro-minded to my employer :~) <shameless plug>
Does your scanner do 55 pages Letter or A4 size (1-sided per minute,
or 27 ditto (2-sided) automatically at 600 DPI ?
And besides, the software that moves the scanner carriage was entirely
written by me! For the mechanics under us: the carriage accelerates
to approx 1 m/s in 33 msec!
Don't ask what happened after I made a mistake in the path calculation
software and tried to run that code on the engineering prototype (way
back in 1994) ...! I was not the only one unhappy with the results!!
