Congratulations Senator Sanders!

I could not resist a political post.  I chose to keep politics out of my blog, but this is an exception.

I gave away several copies of this book 8 years ago.  First heard of it on a radio talk show.

I think it is out of print, but listed here:

Now who will be the better President if the results keep going like last night?

Sometimes plans do not yeild the intended result. 

Swapping from Pica to Elite and different fonts all made the scaling a bit off.  One day I hope to take the time to do a calibration of font size to pixel size to monitor size.  
I hope everyone has a great week end and enjoyable I.T.A.M.
Now I need to plan something.

Teachers and Professors

I invented a new name of a typewriter company.  Too much in a hurry.  Our anniversary was 2 February and I am doing these the night before posting them so this is late in the evening of 2 February and I am not going to edit the post.
Looks like reverting back to a flat bed scanner as either the fist page or second page skews on a sheet feeder scanner.

I.T.A.M. Day Two

This typewriter really kicked off my uncontrollable habit of typewriter collecting.
Since then about 150 or 200 typewriters crossed my workbench.  Presently much to the disdain of Mrs. M. I have about 100 typewriters in the house, but only one -- my Hammond -- on display.  I could display more, but all of my fire department memorabilia would need to go or my old Kodaks.  That will not happen.  So my typewriters remain on shelves in their own private houses only to emerge when I type.  I have about 70 that I can readily use, and a few that I need to use the one or two finger method due to key sticks, flat feed rollers, or play in the carriage.

I've been too busy to retake photos of my typewriters.  As I get time I will rephotograph them and post them to the typewriter database.  If I get them done before the end of ITAM I'll do a montage at the end of the month.  In the mean time I''l type, work on radio projects, and make a few tweaks to my new truck.

On the first Day of I.T.A.M.

Looks like I need to do some alignment work on my scanner.  Have a great I.T.A.M.  This year we get an extra day.  I could not resist the nutty title to this post.  I do not plan to continue along.  Besides the song only includes 12 days.
