I have an older scanner – a Canon LiDE 210. Canon also provides drivers for Windows 10, but they cause the Windows WIA service to crash quite often. Therefore I decided to look for an alternative and tried VueScan – an application which comes with its own drivers.
Before installing VueScan I needed to uninstall the existing Canon software and the old driver and also tell Windows to remove the driver files as well, so the original driver would not be used any longer.
As today’s the World No Tobacco Day, it’s appopriate to mention it: I’ve been smoke free and happy with it for three years now :-). In May 2015, I smoked the last cigarette and live since then smoke-free. Aside from the health aspect, I also grossly estimate to have saved well over 5000 EUR not spent on cigarettes. Money, which I can use in a better way for other things.
In the context of the current discussion about sexual abuse in the film industry, a film produced in 2014 has also been re-staged which looks at the abuse of children in the California film industry and that no distributor wanted to have in the program at that time – “An open secret”.
I’ve been living nearly nine months in this city now and I will soon have experienced all seasons here. It was certainly a good decision to move here in spring and not in winter – because this can be quite uncomfortable in Berlin. The group Seeed expressed this quite spot on in their song “Dickes B”: “Dickes B, home an der Spree, im Sommer tust Du gut und im Winter tut’s weh.” (fat B, home at the Spree, in summer you’re good and in winter it hurts).
I’ve been living in Berlin for half a year now – and nearly three months in the new flat. By now I can say that I arrived, even though there are still many unknown places in the city and many things to explore. I find my ways to the office and to friends without a map and I still enjoy it to be able to use my bicycle most of the time.
