1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^].

I still use the scanner of a "all in printer" that doesn't print anymore. Has been scanning a page in 30 sec more or less during years, but now is getting longer the longer I use it at once. If I have to scan 20 pages the first one is 30 sec or so as it has always been, but the last ones are over 3 minutes. What it is already annoying me pretty much.
As I am thinking anyways in an "office" (actually private usage + some gaming) upgrade next year, I will probably send the old devices to recycle.
I have seen there are "by pass" scanners, where the scanning lense is fixed and the pages get through (as in printers), some specs I have read say around 15 pages pro minute.
Any experiences over there with such things? Do you think better the ones where the light / lense move?
My scan usage is mostly for documents and pictures but in non-professional expectations. Mostly use 300dpi (sometimes 600dpi, very, very seldom something higher). I just want it to be reliable and if possible not over-priced.
If you are happy with your device I would like to ask you: what do you use? I'll check them up.
Thank you in advance
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Just doing the Christmas cards - design the card in Paintshop Pro 2020, tell teh ing driver I want pictures on 200gsm glossy photo paper, and how many copies.
Load a stack of card, press print.
And it prints 'em. Hasn't been used for months, but off it goes.
No "Unrecognised cartridge", no missing lines, no press "clean" and try again a dozen sodding times.
OK, the toner is expensive to buy, but I figure it's cheaper than the amount of paper ink I used to waste trying to get all nozzles on my inkjets working before I could get anything useful.
Now the labels: Avery L7163, mail merge, print, done.
All I have to do is fold 'em, sign 'em, get Herself to sign 'em, envelope 'em, stick a label on, and post 'em.

Yep, as mine is exactly the same it works equally well after long periods of not using it.
Mind you that I ran into a slight problem recently. I accidentally bought me some 300 g laser printing paper and the printer could not handle it: too thick for the paper feed mechanism. Nothing was damaged but the printer stopped with an error indication.
A great man. So far above the rest of us it is often hard to get what he is getting at, but I like a lot of his stuff - for intellectual enjoyment. If I understand it, it gives me a great feeling of superiority!
