Hi Graham,

Glad you're back in the land of scanning again, though I know what
upheaval it is to get going with a new piece of machinery like that. 
I wonder if a second marriage might not be easier (but I'm not going
there ...)

When you say "flat screen monitor" do you mean an LCD?  I'm curious as
I've been thinking about getting an LCD, though my 19" Dell CRT at
home is fine.  The LCDs are all over the place at work and have gotten
much better through the years, but I hadn't thought about how they
render BW until you mentioned it.
