I need to catalog our Anime collection.

Mostly so I know what we already own….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    That’s one of the primary reasons I have the entire CD collection cataloged and in HTML tables. I might as well do the DVDs while they’re still a comparatively short list. I don’t think the books will ever get cataloged again.

    So do it if/when you move.

    You’ve got a CueCat, so just scan them as you (un)pack them. Sure it’ll take a little extra time, but you could have a searchable list that way, using some of the code available out on the ‘net…

    That’d work for a percentage majority, but I still have a ton of books that don’t have ISBNs.

    Good point. However, it’d still cut down on the number you would ahve to manually enter.

    But it’s up to you. I’m probably going to find/build something for my videos, books & software when I move the computer room downstairs. I may even consider doing the music too, but the majority of that doesn’t have UPC codes on it.

    I’ll probably devote a weekend to it anyway *grin*
