Nerdus Doomus

 5¢ Tarot ~ 4 of Swords/Needles

Take a break! Give it a break! I'll confess, I've been working my scanner to death. Apparently. It is autumn ebay clear out time and I have been scan scan scan and scan some more. I finished yesterday afternoon, this morning my scanner wouldn't scan my card. Yipes. 

I've been thinking the last couple of weeks how much I like this scanner and how much I've used it over the years and how much I appreciate it as a helpful tool. Honest, I have. Did that doom it? All the HP ideas aren't working, nor the nerd turn it off, unplug it, uninstall it. 

So I had to get my phone out of the drawer, charge it up, photograph the card and send it to myself. Maybe this card says go have a little lie down. But. What if I also can't print my postage to ship items? Yipes. Yes, go have a little lie down. Then try booting this little guy in the umbrella, see if that works? 4 of Swords. Yes indeedy. 


  1. Ah, I feel your pain and frustration. I had a Canon scanner for years that I had to replace. Hope you can get yours working again.

  2. Maybe like my washer. It needs a siesta, and tomorrow will be back in scanner form

    1. it is tomorrow, and I even let it sleep in, and no dice. it will make copies but says it isn't connected, printer can't be found when I want to scan. I am SO glad I finished the day before on all those 100's of items!


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
