Top 6 Pen Scanners of 2019 | Video Review

Bryan S
Hi,

Has anyone had any experience with a 'pen scanner'?

Most of these devices work on Mac IOS, Android or Windows not Linux.  Not a problem for me as I have
several Windows apps running under my Linux Mint 19+.

Also, here in the US, many Courthouses now prohibit taking any copy from their records such as a picture.
I'm wondering if this is legal problem anywhere else?

My next attempt to model an easy raw data collection setup is to use a 'tablet' style computer, a pen scanner and some
intermediate editing software or database so I can import the data into GRAMPS.

Thanx,
Bryan

So despite a rule against copying, you're going to try to take a copy, and hope the smallness and obscurity of the copy-taking hardware will fool them?

Unwise, IMHO.

Yeah, violating the law in a place with lots of armed & irritable officers isn't the best plan.

On the other hand, officious public servants often are out of touch with current Open Records rulings in their own state. If you are sure they are in violation of state regulations,  test them openly or through the Press -- covert behavior makes prosecutors find other charges. But expect that you're going to incur legal defense costs, possible injury when you 'resist' arrest and active bureaucratic obstruction when you look for records in the future.

Mailling list configuration

GRAMPS - User mailing list
Could the administrator for this maillist revise the automatic footer? It has too many links and wraps too many times on replies.

__________
Change your Gramps mailing list subscriptions

And, if possible, can the bar of underscores be shortened like the above suggestion?

We could easily change it, but I'm not sure what most people would like.

Best option (IMO) would be to put it after a valid sig separator (dash,
dash, space) so that any MUA automatically strips the footer from the
quote when replying.

It is done now (posted from Gnus).

I have no suggestions on the divider except that it should not screen-wrap on smart phones. If some MUAs (Mail User Agents) recognize a particular style to prune signatures, that's a reasonable guideline.

But, in our world of Spoofed links for malware,  the current 3 links are too many choices without having explanations. (They include direct eMail MailTo address for new postings, SourceForge maillist user prefs page, & the Gramps home page.)  

If those links were integrated into the following linked page, that link could suffice for access to subscribe/unsubscribe/archives for all 4 maillists: announce, users, bugs, & devel.

Including the mailing list name, email address and list information page seems to be standard practice.

The addition of the Gramps home page was requested on this list:

https://sourceforge.net/p/gramps/mailman/message/35495584/

I'm not sure that adding a signature separator is a good idea.  It could possibly affect top-posting.  I can reduce the length of the separator line though.


Nick.

Re: Top 6 Pen Scanners of 2019 | Video Review

GRAMPS - User mailing list
In reply to this post by Bryan S
I have used an iScan AOZBZ with a 32GB memory added. It works fine with Linux because it is accessed by a USB cable just as an external storage USB stick would be. Alternatively you could remove the micro storage card and access that. The scanner prepares pdf or jpg versions of the scan.
It is pretty hard to scan accurately right to the edge of A4 documents but is good enough to OCR many documents using gImageReader as a graphical front end to tesseract-ocr.
I can make no comment on copyright issues but this scanner would probably damage delicate documents because it is necessary to apply quite a bit of pressure to ensure the rollers which control the scan process are in contact with the paper. This makes it hard to scan up to the edges of a page in a book without distortion or missing a section. A camera is a far better option for getting a good copy in my opinion.
I hope that this helps.
Kind wishes,
Ian

The footer is always added to the very bottom of the message, regardless
of posting style.  I can't see how it might affect top posters.
