Gary, Is "Whom the Gods Would Destroy" what you're switching from? Neither Judy nor I scan--we just validate. I'm willing to validate what you scan if you submit it and put Hold for Cindy on it. It will take a while, though, since Judy isn't in any hurry and I have a few other things to do first. I will do it before the huge volumes I have downloaded, though. However, if someone else wants to do a fresh scan of it, please post here so Gary and I both know.
