Pray for me, Internets, for I have discovered the wonders of Delicious Library 2. Seriously, it's software like this that makes me delirious to own a Mac.
Using the MacBook's inbuilt iSight camera and this software, I have catalogued some 200+ books, some 300+ CDs, and about 100 DVDs. All in the space of a couple of hours, total. (The DVDs were the slowest part of the process, because none of the Amazon stores really stock Australian DVDs. I anticipate the VHS tapes to be even more slower.)
