Have I ever said how much I hate computers? Loads of times. I made a stupid mistake yesterday and fell for the old “update me now” trick on my Windows 10 laptop. Very long story short, my laptop is deader than corduroy. Luckily, I remembered I had an oldish HP netbook in the cupboard that I had loaded up with Lubuntu a while back. I also found my old Reflecta x-7 35mm film scanner to use until I can figure out drivers and stuff for my Epson V550 (if they exist). Maybe Father Christmas will bring me a new computer this year. (Or not, I’m a realist 😜). Here a few old negs as a scanner test, edited in Darktable for Linux.
