Why does everything take so long?  Or why does time seem to be moving so quickly?

Last night I did one thing - download and process photos.  And it took all night.  Tonight I did one thing - blog my Queensland trip.  And it took all night. 

Although we did put a solar blanket on the pool earlier this evening.

And a shelf collapsed on my white desk downstairs (reminscent of the time my brother's one did the same thing thirty-odd years ago when we camped out in his room), sending old fish tank chemicals (set aside for disposal) all over the floor.  Of course a bottle of methylene blue went everywhere didn't it, and that stuff is nasty.  All over the white desk (even on the laminate I didn't fully get it off) and all over the garage floor (that stuff's *never* coming off :( ).

Here I was trying to do the right thing and save them for a safe disposal (if I could find such a thing) when if I'd just thrown them out years ago this wouldn't have happened :(

So after a pretty depressing day at work I met up with Heather to shop for the weekend's club event.  Well really it was for the after party for the actual event.  Except the actual event has been cancelled due to insolvency of a third party and so everyone is pretty devastated.  The after party is still going ahead, but it might feel more like a wake to a lot of people.  And I prolly won't get to see the little brother, who probably had more invested in the whole thing than anyone.

*sigh*

Also.  I'm getting sick. Hurrah.

Error in Scanner

So this is the error I've been getting ever since the October 2016 Windows 10 updates:

"Error in scanner.  Turn off scanner and follow instructions in manual.  Scanner driver will be closed.  Code : 47,1130,0"

Error in Scanner

I get it at least half the time I attempt to scan.  If I hit OK and hit scan again (I don't bother rebooting the scanner), it'll give me the error up to a few more times, but will eventually scan.  It's really pissing me off.  I've yet to try it on a different computer to see if it's a problem with the scanner or with windows.  

But there's literally no other pages on the internet (that I could find) with that exact error code.  So if you come here looking for a solution, sorry I don't have one.  But if you do find something, let me know and I'll post it here.
