As you may or may not know, I had a Go Fund Me page set up to help me get a new scanner, and due to the various security requirements, it took me longer than expected to actually access any of the donations I had received. I have since been able to work that part out to finally get a new scanner! YAY!
I didn’t completely make the amount I was hoping for, but am beyond humbled by the kindness shown to me by fans. I certainly hope that I can continue to provide interesting insights into the overall Yokoverse and other fun stuff going on in Japan. <3
For anyone who’s interested, this is what I purchased with the help from the donations received. This is not exactly a scanner, but it is both a printer and scanner combined (I actually needed both!). I got an Epson Colorio for about $200!
Here’s a brief example of the prints and a scan that it can do! The below prints of two Outcast posters were merely color prints whereas the print was the result of a printed scan of my own copy of the Strategy Guide.
Pretty damn nice, if I don’t say so myself!! It’s been well over 8 years since I’ve had my own printer! Now I won’t have to go visit the Internet Cafe as much merely to print stuff out!!
Again, I want to thank all those who have sent in donations to help me with my scanner issue. I have since taken down the link to the Go Fund Me page since I am no longer in the need of a new scanner, but for anyone else who may feel compelled to help me with this site, I would be very grateful for your support!! If you would like to help out, please take a look at the Paypal link that is included at the top righthand side of the main page here. Thank you!! <3
