A little extra cash for Christmas

I have a ton of negatives, and some slides that I want to convert to digital. I can scan them at work when I don't have anything else to work on, but I've been pretty consistently busy for the last few months so I don't know when I'll even get to any of them. Since I'm the only lab person I'm not willing to do my stuff if there is any customer stuff that I should be doing.

So... I was thinking of picking up a film scanner and just scanning my stuff at home.

If I do that, do any of you have slides or negatives that you would like scanned to digital? I could do it cheaper than almost every place I've found and it would get me a little bit of extra spending money as the holidays come up.

Would any of you be interested in having me do that?

I have wedding pics and other stuff that would be nice to have scanned. Also some one-off pictures I don't have negatives for. We could work something out.

Re: hmmm
Well, most of the sites I found online will charge $75+ for 100 slides or negs at 3000 ppi. Here at West it is $149 for 100 slides, or $75 for 100 negs, and that is at a resolution of about 1750 ppi. I don't remember National Camera's prices but they were higher than ours.
I'm not looking to make this a business where I solicit strangers to scan their stuff, I'm just looking to help out friends who want their stuff archived without spending gazillions of dollars. At the same time, I don't want to undersell my time that will be involved.
I'm thinking $40-$50 per 100 scans, but I'm also open to suggestions and opinions...
So... Make me an offer!

I'd LOVE for you to scan my Arctic and Spain negatives, but it wouldn't happen before Xmas. (I won't have extra money for such awesomeness until next year.)

i would totally be up for this, but as i am still unemployed for at least another week or so, i won't be able to do it before Christmas. however, if you're still looking at doing this for a little bit of money after the new year, i would love to work something out.
