Yes I can copy it for you. It is stapled so I can
un-staple it and put it through the Automatic Document
Feeder on the copier. Actually the copier can scan into
a folder on the network server I think, though I think
the resolution is fixed, either 300 or 600dpi, and its
probably always 24 bit colour. That makes the files
for a 200 page document a bit big. I will find out the
details when I get to work and let you know so you
can decide how you want it.
You will need to agree that if the copyright owner
were to come after me that you would destroy the
copy, but I don't think that's likely.
I once visited CalComp's plant in Anaheim , and there did
not seem to be many people about, and when I went to
the toilet, that's when I realised they were not doing well.
Its surprising what you can tell from a company's toilets.
Soon after it was official, (Chapter 11?).
