I don't know much about high-speed scanners but I'm trying to learn, re
<http://www.dankohn.com/itbusiness.html>. Did you mean the DC60 at
<http://www.visionshape.com/millennium.html>. Is this the top-of-the-line,
at 90 pages per minute!?!
Who could I outsource the scanning to in the US and Europe if I wanted to be
able to overnight documents there, the TIFFs forwarded by email, and then
have all of the OCR and data entry done in Uganda?

What was the J.C. Lilly Paper & Fiber Products Corporation thinking? I hope that 'digital toner' gets at least that fun.

Right; we postliterate people have given up chopping off spines and feeding exactly 7 pages at a time (then flipping same) to out ScanMakerX6 with ADR (....) becaise the DC06, featured in ID Magazine just now, comes with an option to scan as it sucks and cyclones; you just put it in the library and empty the canisters from tome to tome; it's quite filmic.
Look! Java 2 in 27 seconds! You can tell it's a proof by the way the CD shatters.
