I didn't, the minilab did :-)
I took them with an ancient 35mm SLR. The minilab who processed the films
offered to put them on CD-ROM for a little (very little) extra money. And
I finally found an internet cafe that would let me upload said images
(Yes, I do own a CR-ROM drive, but I don't have a fast connection.).
The resolution on the film negatives is considerably higher than said
scans, but IMHO they were good enough to upload. And of course I have the
negatives if I want to make any larger prints.

I'll stick to my good old mechnaical Leicas. The later one actually
contains electrical components (the flash sync contacts), the older one
has nothing electrical _at all_.
