After a wasted morning it went downhill more when I tried out the replacement film scanner which worked after a fashion but the usual lack of sync between film transport and take up reel produced a flicker that wasn't acceptable. Remember the Chinese supplier who said its only a little wobble! Anyway Coopers are sending a third, their last one in stock, I expect the others have gone to land fill, I can't see them sending them all back to China. I've copied a nice Malta 1983 reel of Maltese buses and a very brief glimpse of exquisite commercials waiting to load on the Gozo ferry. These were from Roger De Boer and we hope to start scanning his collection soon, we last copied it tele cine decades back.
After having spent most of the day indoors trying in vain to sort EBay demands I then turned my attention to the garden as it was hot and sunny after yesterday which was rain all day and night. Hedges trimmed, lawns mowed, edges strimmed. I need to do some dead heading in the borders and a feed and weed plus clear up after hedge cutting. More of the Hampshire trip and lets have some Southampton lorries for a break from buses. I'm now downloading ready to start editing.
