Arg!!! Ctrl-W is a bad idea under Netscape for Windows. It closes the bloody window!! Now to remeber what I wrote.
Christmas was good to see the parents again and my sister, but I see her pretty often as she's just up in SF. New Years was nice. Had dinner at my sister's place and then watched the SF fireworks from a park that's only a few blocks away.
I finally got the PS/2 to AT and AT to PS/2 converters to hook up a Cue Cat a guy I know gave me (I have an AT keyboard and they use PS/2 connectors :( ). I decided to open it up and do the mod so that it spews the raw ascii data w/o serial number or base64 "encryption" (probably should take a picture of it). It's much more useful.
I have keyboard extension cables that allowed me to reach from my living room into my walk-in closet (where I keep all my books), so I scanned them. Some books are anoying and didn't have the ISBN as a bar code, and I have a few books that are so old they don't even have an ISBN!
I downloaded the YAZ software and have learned that the Library of Congress's book selection is sorely lacking. I have found that the University of California catalog has most of the books, both fiction and non-fiction that I have. Now to write a script to convert from MARC format to Web or something so I can automate pulling the data out.
At least it's working now! :)
