    Windows Fax and Scan

    I just wanted to comment that I think it is pretty crappy that Windows Fax
    and Scan doesn't work with Twain compliant scanners (or at least that is what
    it says in help). I have been trying to get my scanner to work in Fan and
    Scan and finally looked in halp and it says it doesn't work with TWAIN
    complaint scanner. I think that is pretty STOOPID considering Twain is the
    defacto standard and 90% of todays scanners is TWAIN compliant.

    note: now i understand why people said my typo's were bad when i was the
    translator.
    example for why i'm posting this.:

    fan when he meant fax
    stoopid when he meant stupid

    by the way, i'm not cracking on you i'm just showing example of stuff, i
    might have said which is why i was told to need english classes.

    Yes, Fan was an accident. But Stoopid was intentional. It's a gaming thing I
    guess. I'm not sure why I always see it spelled that way in chat. I always
    thought it was to emphasize something that was really stupid. Could be I was
    just copying ignorant people that just can't spell. But, yes "Fan" was an
    accident and was supposed to be Fax.

    well like i was saying i didn't post that to show your mistake i posted to
    show my mistake, because now i know how it feels to be the reader and see a
    typo, reason why i bring this up is because i was teased about my typo's as
    well.
