I've tried that URL a couple of times.  I keep getting a host unreachable
message.  Maybe it's down, or busy.

    bash # sane-find-scanner

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x010f) at /dev/usb/scanner0
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x010f, chip=LM983x?) at libusb:001:002
      # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

    bash # scanimage -L

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

I do have a device defined in /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf file.  Still won't
work, though.  Only sane-find-scanner seems to be able to see the scanner.

Thanks for the suggestions.
