Shinylust

Both my cuecat (for scanning the barcodes of books and putting them straight into LibraryThing) and my camera turned up today. Got my cuecat first because the camera was left next door, and they were out, so I scanned 2/3 of a bookcase into LibraryThing in about half an hour. Win! Now I have a camera, and it's too-many-shiny-gadgets-what-do-I-do-now? time.

Here is a video of Christopher Judge (Teal'C from Stargate) finding out what furries are at Dragon*Con. As geekchick says, Best Reaction Ever.

Must remember to dig out my CueCat from when they first came out and they were giving them away.

Grrr :( Why did you NOT TELL ME?!?! (You probably did mention it, and I was not paying attention properly...)

I need to borrow someone's laptop now, so I don't have to carry piles of books around.

When they first came out is when I got mine.

From wikipedia:

The CueCat (trademarked :CueCat) is a cat-shaped handheld barcode reader developed in the late 1990s by the now-defunct Digital Convergence Corporation, which connected to computers using the PS/2 keyboard port and later USB. The CueCat enabled users to link to an Internet URL by scanning a barcode appearing in an article, catalog or on some other printed matter. In this way a user could be directed to a web page containing related information without having to enter a URL. The system that supported this functionality is no longer in operation.

Oh, alright then, you're forgiven for not telling me :D
