Nostrodamus asks, "Is it SCSI, Parallel or USB?"
Since I already channel Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Hunter Thompson, ole
Nostros grabbed a piece of my brain too, to ask for clarification. 

What you may not have done is open the lid after invoking sane. It'll go
lurch-lurch and be ready to scan. My HP refuses to scan unless I open
and shut the lid at times, especially if I put the picture in, then
crank up sane after. I did all that you did, beat myself up, brain
turned to mush, etc. Then discovered this "feature". A grown man crying
is a pitiful thing to see. :) Ric

Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
