The Canon portable scanner saga continues!!!
Paid for Next Day Delivery on Tuesday 1st September for Wednesday 2nd September, it's now mid-afternoon on Thursday 3rd September and yep, no sign of the bloody thing.
I don't have a tracking number because the scanner was being despatched from one of their suppliers. Yes folks, that's Laptops Direct for you - so, twice in the space of a week I'm let down by two very crap companies.
I took a look at TripAdvisor, the review site and oh dear, oh dear, Laptops Direct do not have a very solid fan base. I have a feeling that all the really good reviews were probably written by them. Yet you would think with my experience of on-line purchasing that I would have checked before using any on-line company, but no. I will blame my current mental health state.
As the title of this bloggy post thing suggests, I have to move forward (please note I really hate the buzzword thing, so apologies for saying "moving forward"). Perhaps I should say, I've decided to leave that behind me and plough on ahead.
Yeah, that sounds better.
So, as the title of this bloggy post thing suggests, I've decided to leave that behind me and plough on ahead. The scanner on my Canon MX495 all-in-one is very good, so today I've been getting to grips with it's various functions, not least the "Scan and Stitch" facility.

Yes, it's a little more effort, but definitely worth it and once I've got the hang of it, like anything else, it'll be pretty quick.
As you will see from the two photos below, I have to scan from each end of the certificate separately:
