Re: First build with automatic dewarping

Ah, OK. Scan Tailer... I already have Scan Tailer 0.9.10, I thought this was something different.

I like the way it slipts two pages and was trying to setup a single camera like the russian one that uses mirrors
to reflect both pages to the camera.

Thanks

Re: Monson's Servo Auto Scanner

Not selfish, Every so offten I do the same thing. Pictures you are posting help a lot as it moves forward. The code would be great if you recover it. I'm familiyar with "C" but not enough to do it myself yet. So far I'm only able to get a motor to turn forward & backward is as far as I have got. Tha...

I would host it on my home linux server for you but it's not able to handle a lot of traffic. One or two connections at a time would be about it. To many streams could bring d...
