I must get one of these!

This would be *the* way for me to finally index the *thousands* of DVDs, CDs, videos, etc, I own!

I am: sleepy sleepy
Current Media: rain

I looked at that and then noticed the price. Thanks, but I think I'll be disorginized a bit longer.

As a thought, you could probably do something similar with an old CueCat.

You can, there is software out there for the CueCat. And, unless I finally threw it away, I should have an unused CueCat still in the box somewhere in my stuff.

But this thing is just cool - BlueTooth wireless scanning. I have shit on shelves all over, with this I'd be able to go to the stuff instead of bringing all the stuff to my PC.

Didn't you get a cuecat when they were being, ahem, given away?

Yes, and I think I may still have it, unused, somewhere.

I like this because it is wireless and I could go to all my shelves of stuff and scan things rapidly, instead of having to pull everything over to the PC. It also comes with a load of software that seems pretty nice - auto-indexing and looking up records for DVD, VHS, CD, and books.

I've heard of some software for the Cuecat, but I'm not sure how much of that it can do.

Ooh! Shiny!

Mind you, the bluetooth isn't the interesting bit. You could just as easily replace that with a USB connector. Take it to your shelves, scan stuff, and go back to the desktop computer, plug in and hotsync the data, and I'd be happy.

If you got someone to go in on the order with you and order a second one, it would have saved A WHOLE DOLLAR! :)

I know, kind of silly.
