Things have been pretty quiet here at kinexxions for the past month or so. Not much research has been done during that time. And not much writing. Just busy scanning documents. And scanning. And scanning. I knew I had accumulated a lot of paper in my 20+ years of research. I just didn't realize how much!
Since my last report a month ago, I've scanned another 9,694 pages! For a total of 18,029 pages scanned with the wonderful Fujitsu ScanSnap S300. In two months. And yet, there is still more to do.
I'm not on a first name basis with the fellow at the recycling center yet but he does recognize me! About a third of the pages that I've scanned have been physically discarded. Some of what had been filed were reports from my genealogy database that had been used for reference at some point in time. I didn't scan them before recycling them as many were quite old and some were still on the 'puter.
The papers that are being kept have been removed from their bulky space-consuming 3-ring binders and put into folders, then into "bankers" boxes for temporary storage. Once I become more "comfortable" with the idea and functionality of accessing the computer files, some of those papers will be recycled as well. Old habits die hard.
How much more is left to scan? I'm not sure, but not as much as there was a month ago!
