I'm saving someone from a big, boring, time consuming job after I die.

No kidding, Mark.

I have at least 60,000 climbing-related slides, mostly adventure stuff (Africa, Alaska, South America, Australia, etc.), but also portraits of everyone from RR (in '94) to Wilford (in '92)...a huge, huge compendium of stuff.

Not sure what to do with it all except scan it.

going through my family's slides, I looked for an easier way than to scan them one by one. I thought, Boomer already paid hundreds to have these loaded onto four CDs in 2007: there has got to be a way to get these images off the CD and I figured it out, eventually.

I just now tossed all eighteen boxes of slides. I live in a studio, and space is more precious than old slides I'll never need. Each of the kids got a set of CDs, so nobody's gonna miss'em or even know they're gone.

The thing is, somebody has to scan the slides, and unless you have nada to do, I recommend going through them, deciding which to keep, and sending them out to have them scanned and loaded on to disc. You can make copies off the disc, a simple process, as you need them. Works for me, but I ain't the one that paid to have the discs made!
