Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
Well put.Do I detect a Printype Oliver at work?
The force is strong in this one. Yes, you detect a Printype Oliver:)
Picking up milk on the way home, I almost bought some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, just because that sounded SO good when you mentioned it. I didn't buy any, but I did get up this morning an bake homemade bread... Slow-rising, yeast-scented bread that takes hours to make. Flour, salt, yeast, and water. Uncomplicated.
Hi,I just found your typecast -- very nice. I have 8 manual typewriters (Hermes Baby, some Olympias, a Galaxie Deluxe, a couple of Olivettis, etc.). I went through a big typewriter phase a year or so ago, then got sidetracked. I want to start using my typewriters again, so here's a stupid question: Do you just scan your typewritten page then post it online? Hey, I'm a Luddite.
Rhea, yeah, it just some cheap Lexmark printer/fax/copy/scanner. After a lot of trial and error early on, I try to keep my typewritten page so the text is between 3 and 3.5" and then after I scan it it, I scale it down to 37%. Don't ask me how I came to those numbers, it was trial and error and it ended up working for me.After the page is uploaded as an image, I find it quite readable on the blog and it fits nicely on my smartphone screen without having to resize or zoom.I think you should get back into that typewriter phase and post some pictures and typecasts:) And thanks for stopping by and sharing.
Thanks, Deek! The info on scaling the page is helpful. I'm mulling over the idea of typecasting ... gotta get some of my machines fixed. Although the Hermes Baby works just fine. As does my Olivetti Lettera.
