Izolag and Ananda are a tag team, both from Brazil, they rock the Favelas with their murals as well as create fantastic canvases. An amazing pair, and incredible artists.

By, Izolag. The power of the internet and the immortalization of of a good friend by one of the world's foremost muralists. It left me speechless today.

Microtek SUCKS

The Microtek ArtixScan 4000tf 35mm and APS film scanner.
I have a Microtek scanner that now operates as a paper weight on my desk. After numerous calls to the company I was told that they no long have a repair facility in the US to support their products and in fact was closed in 2004. After going back and forth with their customer support, which must be run by a bunch of malcontents working at a temporary job until something better comes up I got this as a reply;

"Microtek's repair facility closed in December 2004 and to accommodate many of our out of warranty customers Microtek authorized Customer Service to offer replacement units at a reduced price."

You would think that was a good deal. Not. You would still have to fork over $500.00 to get an equivalent model. Mind you that this product only produced less then 2000 scans and a quick look around the web seems to substantiate this for some other of their products.

My advice; stay the hell away from them. Buy their products at your own peril.
