Following up on my recent post about software to keep track of lending DVDs, I've now entered all of mine into DVDProfiler. It's annoying that I had to hack the folder permissions to get it working, and it seems to be a bit weird about handling boxsets, but overall it's a good application, and I think it will now replace my existing Access database.

Anyway, you can see my list here, except for a couple that are out on loan. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to borrow.

"Anyway, you can see my list here" - no you can't, it's a private collection. :-)

I have been tempted to do this using Delicious LIbrary. It is unfortunately Mac-only but it is very shiny. If I had a reasonable webcam I could use it to scan barcodes and enter things that way. :-)

I do wish people would stop writing single-platform, single user applications when the ideal solution is so evidently a Web 2.0 site.

The only real feature of that software that I like that a website really couldn't do well is one that I can't use due to lack of webcam - the automatic addition of items by scanning their barcodes.

Yes, you'd need to use a Java or Flash applet to do that bit. But they could be embedded into the pages of the website. :-)
