Missed it by this much!!

I had a ScanMan, but sold it through the LEM Swaplist earlier this summer. It had a software diskette & manual, but was missing the power pack. Not sure if the disk was readable or not, as I didn't have a machine that would read an 800k diskette... I might be able to dig up contact info for the guy who bought it though.

I did scan the manual for it & put it into pdf format, if that is of any help to you. PM me if you'd like a link to it.

I wonder if Paperport 5.1 (or earlier) could possibly work with it. I downloaded it off the internet last year.

I am in the process of trying to join this group to get the software and here is the form letter they sent and want me to answer. See below:

Hello.

Please tell me for what purpose you wish to join the PaperPort
Preservation Society. Also
indicate how or where you found this group.

Do you understand that this is a forum for Mac-only uses of PaperPort
Hardware and
software? Do you have either of these? Which models?

Thanks for your attention. Your answers will determine whether you will
be admitted.

P.S. This is not a depot for software dissemination. It is an interest
group. If you only want to
download software and not participate in the forum, please do not
bother applying for
membership.

Can someone please explain why this Yahoo group owner thinks he is running some sort of secret religous society...makes me think of the History Channel show that was done on the Davinci Code.

Disseminating the Paperport s

Disseminating the Paperport software is probably illegal. He may have to worry about falling into the "Napster" problem. I purchased a Strobe Pro later last year from an authorized seller which came with the Mac software, so I do own it legally. Smile

disseminate: scatter, distrib

disseminate: scatter, distribute over a large area or range, circulate, share with a lot of others. Whenever you install software, there's usually a legal agreement you have to agree to by clicking on "I agree," etc., and that agreement typically states how and who has the right to use your installation and whether it can be installed multiple times. We all read that agreement everytime, including all the pages and pages of fine print, right?
