lol, "I don't read this thread"

Also, thanks, this worked perfectly!
Weird how we had the same issue in such a tight time period.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Weird question/request. Somehow I've lost the power adapter for my scanner—makes no sense, yet it's gone—so I need to buy a new one. My problem is that I can't find an exact match for what the manual says I need—DC 24V, 0.75A. An eBay auction lists this:
Type: AC to DC Standard
Input: AC 100V - 240V 50-60Hz
Input Connecter standard: 2 or 3 Pin US Plug
DC Output: DC
Connector Size: Barrel Tip

Can anyone point me to an adapter that'll fit what I need?

edit: Never mind. Apparently posting my request was a sufficient offering to the gods, who revealed the existence of a working adapter in a box of junk.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Cool because there isnt enough info in what you provided.

That was my fear. I found adapters that plugged in properly but didn't power it up. Annoying as fuck.

There is no standardization in this area, different manufacturers use different connectors so even if your voltage and amp out put was correct you could still have a plug mismatch. You can buy ones that come with an adjustable voltage output and a variety of tips that you can use.

Just tried scanning and it doesn't work. I have no idea if it's a power issue—enough juice to power up but not enough to scan?—or the scanner is broken. So, fuck.

So I'm putting together a set of drawers and just noticed in 2 of the drawers I've forgot to put these wedgefixes on the base, reckon they're imperative?

Is that to keep the center guide rail on the underside of the drawers in place?

It was just to sturdy the base of each drawer. Probably not essential but took 30 mins taking it all apart again. :rolleyes:

Yeah a piece like that is probably something that comes into play more after some usage.

Any Android users have a good music player to recommend ? I have been using Rocket Player but it can no longer update album art. So Im looking for a good player that is also able to update art, edit tags etc.

I use mediamonkey, have for years. I mostly use it because it's great for handling large libraries on my desktop and then it has lots of great sync capabilities with their android app (and it can stream from desktop to my google chrome audio which handles hi res audio files). Honestly, I haven't used the android app a ton but it may get the job done for you and it's great if you want a single music ecosystem with phone/desktop.

Also, if you decide you want to buy a Mediamonkey gold key for the desktop version, you can get a 30% discount with the code THANKS-MM5-BETATESTERS until mediamonkey 5.0 is officially released.
