Hey, that DID work, sort of.
I think I've got the scanning question resolved (and in the process figured out just why trying Kinko's hadn't occurred to me initially...); behold, Trevor and Jason's business-card:

It needs further touching-up, as one can see even from this thumbnail, but that, at least, I can do in-house. So one technological hurdle down, about a dozen to go. (There will, eventually, be t-shirts of similar design. If the Artist and I both survive the process.)

And speaking of being defeated by technology, the neighbors have now bunged up hose #3 and sprayer #4. For anybody who may be keeping count, that body-count is all within 5 growing-seasons... Do other people's gardens need to budget for annual hose replacement?

Looks like a pretty decent scan job! Just some mopping up in Paint or similar and you're good to go.

Maybe you shouldn't lend the neighbors any more garden tools...

It's a condo, the hose lives out in a common area (we're the ones who end up buying hoses for back there because we're the ones who use that tap for the garden). :( FWIW, they've also messed up the hose in the front yard, which isn't my problem, at least... Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in this building who's mechanically inclined -- how hard is it to unscrew a coupling without trashing it?

Clearly it's time for a sign which reads "UNSCREW GENTLY - TURN THIS WAY" with a diagram. >_>

That would only work if they READ it... ;)

Looks good!

Yes, but only because I always forget to take them in before serious frost. Doesn't sound like that's the problem here.

I had a closer look and realized that it was leaking around the connection because they'd somehow managed to make off with the washer from inside the sprayer-head when they decoupled it -- fortunately the washer turned out to still be embedded in the coupler for the soaker-hose they'd hooked mine up to, so I reunited the bits and it's no longer SPRAYING ME IN THE FACE when I water my own plants. I'm still kind of baffled at how/why they managed to get the washer out of the sprayer in the first place...
