Too big for my scanner...

Where to get a large format picture scanned? I have eight 14" x 22" posters from all of the plays I was in during my high school years in the mid-80's. I would like to have them all scanned, front and back, into images I can post on the web. I took them to FedEx-Kinko's, and they wanted $8 per side to scan them. I am nostalgic, but not $128 worth of nostalgic. Is there a less expensive way I can turn these memories into digital artifacts?

Formatting strings

String manipulation in C#: I know that the String.Format method can format numeric data so that {0:#,###} transforms 1234 into the string "1,234". There are lots of standard formatters like {0:C} for currency, and endless ways to format DateTime objects. But is there a similar shorthand to format a string or to apply a mask to it? [more inside]
