[filmscanners] Re: keeping the 16bit scans; now=HD longevityOT

You raise some very valid points.  Especially, in the midst of an energy
related war, where many people are dying as a result.  The real savings
are questionable with the most favorable numbers, and once one throws a
few wars into the picture (not to mention global warming. pollution,
etc) the economy of running a computer 24 hours a day begins to take on
a rather sour taste, in my view.
