I'm sorry that I missed scanfest! I will hopefully have lots of documents to scan this month.

The deal from ScanMyPhotos.com seems too good to pass up. They have extended the offer to May 11.

Apple, we missed you, too! I look forward to seeing you at the next Scanfest. You can tell us all about your trip to Michigan.

The ScanMyPhotos.com deal looks great and I plan on taking them up on the offer.
