Yep Cindy. Sanning gets to be kind of like rowing, flip, scan, flip, scan,
flip scan, you get a rhythm going and all else kinda fades into the
background until...holy hobgoblins, the book's been scanned! Then comes the
fun part of proofing your own work, which of course, any veteran scanner can
ttell you is often tedious work. We often see what we know should be there
in our own works, so it usually takes somebody else who hasn't been slaving
over the scanner for 3 or 4 hours to spot the errors. Like missing pages.
Lol.
