The bed and breakfast where we stayed during our honeymoon on Vancouver Island is apparently closed. Their website states that they closed last fall, and were booked all the way up to their closing date. I wonder why they closed. It was a very pleasant, comfortable place to be pampered, very close to skiing at Mt. Washington, and just secluded enough to decompress from wherever you just came from.
I’m sure many of you Mac users are already quite aware of this program, but having been a new convert to the Mac world, I’d only heard of such things as Delicious Library.
Let me say that I am completely and totally overwhelmed by how smart and wonderful and spectacular this program is. I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface, and I’m already blown away by what a great program this is. For $40, downloaded, and inside of an hour, I’ve already scanned in 100+ books and 5 video games, all within reach of my chair. I haven’t had to get up for anything.
The only thing is that some of the older books’ UPCs have apparently been recycled for newer items or simply not found by the program, so I’ve had to manually type in more than a couple ISBNs, but all in all, the scanning function is quite good once you get the hang of the angle and where it needs to be relative to the camera. Phenomenally simple. It even has a voice recognition function to find the book you’re looking for. It’s a bit less than perfect, but it’s still cool.
Anyway, Delicious Library gets a free ad by way of this entry because it’s just a really nice program.
Also, FYI, there is no equivalent for the PC/Windows.
