hardware: TJ scoping out wavering purchase plans. presently thinking laptop,
flatbed scanner, and jaz drive that can operate off dual platform. Do raw
scans, demo project locally on laptop at various sites, clean up scans on
desktops at BMC, elsewhere. Do other repositories have scanners we can
use there? Finally make decision about mac/wintel?
continuing discussions about approach: resources in full, vs demo of depth,
friendliness of front end; wariness of mission creep into thousands of directions;
Sally away till 17th June; Tom available starting in July; next internal
