I agree wholeheartedly about diagraming sentences. It's a skill that everyone should learn during their formative years. I think I was in HS before I learned how to do it, and it has stood me in good stead all the many years since.
I fully intend to teach it to my kids starting fairly soon. Parsing and Latin were the two classes I took in HS that have greatly and positively affected my writing ability.

Right on, TEd. Back when parsing meant parsing, and scanning meant scanning.

you do mean to use light, reflected off an image, create an electronic signal, right?
the light travels across and then down(repeatedly) the image in a stream, and image on the paper is first changed into a stream of reflected or non reflected light. this stream of light is further changed into an an electron signal by passing the reflected light, in stream, to a light sensitive switch, that turns on or off, dependant on the level of light reflected off the images. these changes from one state to another state are (the on/off signals) are electronic image of the information contained originaly on the paper.
or was it something else you had in mind?_________________________
