tom foolery

Last I checked, playing around is haphazard, so off we go!

According to the fluffy kitty name directory,

My Kitten is Gregory Merryweather.
Take The fluffy kitten name generator today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Name Generator Generator.

I could have sworn I'd asked for a girl kitty, but maybe the generator classifies Gregory as a unisex name like Leslie or Lee or Ashley.

I rocked out with the Jackson 5 on the Alphabet Soup Word Generator.

There are definitely a lot of fun generators to play with but alas, it is time to move on.


OK, so, about 4 years ago, my brother-in-law and his brother pulled me into the computer room and were super excited. They said "Jenny, check this out! You're going to love it!" Pretty much, it was the beginning stages of a library cataloging application wherein you used a camera to scan in the bar code on all of your media and it would keep it all in one place. There were even tools that helped you check movies or books or cd's or whatever out to friends. This wonderous application was Delicious Library.
Then about a year ago, my boyfriend got that same excited look in his eye. Turns out Delicous Library had revamped and released Delicous Library 2. The interface is much richer and it really is fun looking now. I, um, just never scanned everything in.
This all being said, I checked out LibraryThing and liked a lot about it. I really like that it's built for networking and book clubs. I can see being excited about it. But, I still think that I'd prefer to use a system that is built to record all of my media. I'm not just a book geek after all.


I don't really know what to say here. Remember last week when I said that I'm a google girl. Well, I pretty much just search on google...
I think I may need to find some more search engines to rollyo on in before we can really bond.
