Well after several months, at great expense and costing countless lives, I FINALLY got my Domino 4x4 film scanner delivered to the studio. I had one HEEEEELLLLL of a time finding ANYONE willing to go pick the damn thing up in a residential area of Burbank, let alone palletize it, for a cost that was less than the GNP of a small African nation. Apparently, trucks with lift-gates are as rare a giant condors in SoCal. But finally I found a cat willing to take on this daunting, dare I say, Herculean feat, brave Burbank's legions of police and quest after my scanner. It now sits in the dark recesses of my film studio, waiting to be unwrapped like a Christmas present for Indiana Jones, somewhat mystical and foreboding. Although, at the BLINDING speed of something like 15 seconds a frame :blink: , it will leave us with PLENTY of time to contemplate the nature of man and his place in the Universe. The good news is it SHOULD save us a bunch of cash in the long run......ASSUMING of course it doesn't break down BUT we DID get a SH*TLOAD of spare parts. I'm looking forward to seeing what this puppy can do. :D
