Since my last post about back-end support for the "Relisys Scorpio
Super 3 SCSI II" scanner I have had various email contacts and
gathered together a few resources.
Tyler Bindon <firstname.lastname@example.org> had been working on a back-end
early last year and had starting getting it to work, but he lost all
his code (and more importantly, his motivation) when a disk crashed on
He had not got a specification, but had been reverse engineering the
ASPI calls of the Win95 TWAIN driver using a ASPI logging tool from Ed
Hamrick of www.hamrick.com.
I have installed Win 95 on a partition of my machine (Ugh!), have got
a copy of the logging tool from Ed Hamrick, and can now generate
(extensive) logs of the ASPI activity.
Who (anyone? - please!) wants to join me into trying to get this
little beasty running?
Can anyone (who is sensible enough to remain at a safe distance ;-})
give me pointers to help me not "reinvent the wheel"?
I think that it only fair to point out what I am and what I am not:
I am an experienced programmer who has been at it for the last
20-odd (!) years.
I have never done a collaborative, open source project before.
I am a lousy project manager (and don't want to be a good one)!
I have a life, a wife, two growing children and a job. Any one of
them will start complaining in I spend *too* much time behind this
What are my/our (?) chances?
