MSCP protocol docs

For the DIGITAL community, I still scan documents as long as it is
loose sheets or it is OK to remove the staples.
I do not scan books, that's too time consuming.
FYI, I use the scan-to-file option of the Oc? 3165 printer/copier.
Any size up to A3/Ledger (11"x 17") is easy, and even mixed sets,
for example Letter-sized with fold-outs for schematics are OK.
That takes a bit more time to prevent the fold-out to be scaled to
Letter size (a few manual actions required).

The result is a PDF file readable by Acrobat Reader, but the files
are *BIG*, actually they are TIFF's with "PDF jacket".
I once did a test on a *text-only* document of 25 pages. The PDF
was 6.8 Mbytes, and after going through the Distiller it was just
over 650 kbytes ... but I noticed some loss of information here
and there. So, reliability is not a full 100%. I stay with the
big files knowing not to loose any information.
BTW the resolution of the scanner is 600 dpi.
For a sample of the scan quality see the scans on mainecoon ...

Please e-mail first if you want me to do some scanning.
I offer the service free as long as it is DIGITAL, preferably
PDP-11 related. You pay the postal cost for sending the doc to me,
and the postal cost if you want them back. The resulting scan files
are put on a CD-ROM and I ask US $2 for a CD-ROM (up to 650 Mb).
I hope that is a reasonable fee ...
