& I must say, it looks every bit as delicious as we’d expected. Barcode scanning is just peachy with my Sony DV camera, its annoying habit of going into standby notwithstanding – it’s fasy and accurate and so much fun, you’ll want to cough up the registration fee just to keep going after your allotted 25 additions. My first impressions of actually using the thing are also good. It’s very much a v1.0 release, and I’ve already filed a few bug/feature/behaviour reports, but… oh, just download it and see.
Delicious Monster’s site is here; Ars Technica, of all places, have an hilariously partisan review of the program here. For those who haven’t been paying attention, Delicious Library is a cataloguing application for your books, DVDs, CDs, and video games. Which sounds mundane; the application is anything but. For those who have been paying attention, yes, I started this post with an ampersand solely because I wanted to see what it looked like as a drop cap. So sue me.
One thing – it’s hard to emphasise just how much fun barcode scanning is practice. If you haven’t got an iSight or a suitable DV camera (or, indeed, a Mac), you’ll just have to believe me.
