Re: filmscanners: Fast, decent, low res scans

I worked for nearly a year with an unterminated SCSI bus (card-to-Acer, nothing 
out) with no problems that I could recognize. After I started having 
unexplainable (and unreproducible) problems, I bought and installed a 
terminator for about $30 US. I would not swear so in court, but the terminator 
*might* have helped. Or it might not have--I'm not sure how one tells the 
difference. For my apps, it was very slight.
