Hi Catherine,

It might be so simple as to contact Imacon and ask them for the company that
makes the one they packaged in the kit—or maybe they would be so kind as to
just send you one—afterall, you paid a fortune for their scanner and they should
help see that it works.

When I first got my Imacon 848, it didn't work. I was in shock. I called
Imacon and the person I talked to said they could send me a refurbished 848. I
had just paid a small fortune for this brand new scanner. I told him that I
had just paid for a new scanner and I would not accept a used scanner for the
price of a new one. Furthermore, I told him that I hoped he had a good
travel plan because my attorney also thought it was a really bad idea and would
like to discuss options with him in a local county courtroom. There was a
moment of silence and then he said to put the scanner back in the box and FEDEX
would pick it up that very day. It would be shipped overnight to Imacon where
they would fix it and overnight it back to me the following day. Now that was
good service. They actually did that and the scanner has worked wonderfully
since then. So don't be afraid to ask for help, and if need be, remind
Imacon that in Australia you have the highest number of the most deadly poisonous
snakes in the world and they are small enough and hardy enough to be shipped
anywhere in the world heheheheheh

I'm sorry you are experiencing all these ecological disasters. I am sure
our President George W would just love to make some recommendations that would
be helpful to Australia in preserving their environment. He has such a
wonderful track record in this area and is just full of .....ideas. I'll stop now
too. (I was about to leap into the issue of privatization of war/Halliburton
Soldiers, but I'll spare you my outrage)

Have a great day,

Mark Nelson
