Re: filmscanners: VueScan and SprintScan 120

WOW... I used to hear about reports of software causing hardware 
failures, and I always thought they were a bit like half of the virus 
warnings... urban myth...  But I do suppose with so much of the 
electronics/mechanics now controlled through firmware or software, that 
a voltage change or repeated action could do some damage.
