TTG's bodged-up, botched-up book scanner

Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

These images aren't loading for me, Dan. Might be casualties of the server move.

Crap, I think you're right. TTG, were you able to see them? I can't re-upload them until I get home tonight.

Nope, I get little red X's. Like I said, though, not a rush -- can't do much more until a replacement camera comes in anyway...

This is really weird -- on Google Chrome, at home, the images show up. How about now, guys?

Worked for me now -- many thanks! I tried the prior post in Chrome, without success; it must be a location or cache thing.

Working for me now, too!

Yes, it might be a cache thing - did you originally upload it from Chrome at home? The images were probably still sitting in your cache.
