APS breakage (the Nikon saga begins)

Spent an intellectually stimulating but ultimately fruitless few hours trying to port a piece of badly-written Amiga software to Mac OS X.

Copied a bunch of TV shows to tape for Laura.

The APS adaptor for my film scanner broke. Luckily it’s still under warranty. I could do without the hassle, though. I’ve decided to ship it back to Nikon, and have them repair it—then I’ll try and scan every single roll of APS in as little time as possible. If it breaks again during that time, I’ll demand a refund. If the worst comes to the worst, I can extract the APS film from the cassettes by brute force, scan the negatives using the film strip holder, and pretend they’re 35mm. It’s not like I’ll ever get any more optical prints, after all.
