Scanning my life with the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510

I’ve fallen in love with the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510. It is an absolutely wonderful piece of hardware. Possibly my favourite-est piece of hardware I own right now.

I’m slowly scanning my life. I used to have lots of bits of paper I don’t want to keep, but I don’t want to throw them out either. Old bank statements. Old credit card statements.

So I scan them. This ScanSnap makes it easy and relatively painless to do. The software is a little bit clunky, but it works pretty well.

I then store all my scans in a subversion repository. Someday I’ll use git, but not yet.
