i'm about to embark on a document-imaging and archiving project. i have dozens of handwritten notebooks, a 7 megapixel camera, tripod, macbook, and large external drive. is iphoto going to be useful for this? (or sketchy i may use a separate iphoto library on an external drive?). are alternative software/strategies preferred for managing all these document images? (in case it matters, i'm not interested in putting them online at this point).
i happened upon an old Korg Poly 800 synth (vintage 80s!). i understand it is one of the earlier MIDI synths--but i don't really grog MIDI. what additional cables/equipment will i need to use it to control the many possible sounds i see in garageband on my macbook?
