I'm not sure I'm up for that.
In fact I'm 100% sure that I'm not.

Thanks for the suggestion, but:
- A lot of my work doesn't involve sitting at my desk.
- Scanning 50-year-old paper in varying condition involves a lot
more work than just dumping pages onto a scanner.
- Production scanners are large and my lab is already full of things
that actually need to be there.
- I already work 12-16 hour days, seven days a week. Putting yet
more shit on my shoulders because no one else will put down the game
controller or the bong and do a little work isn't going to happen.
So the stuff sits unscanned, just like a million other things sit undone.
