The software in use in my library (600 plus and counting--unless my husband has his way!) is BookCat.  Definitely NOT free, but I think it's worth it. Endless custom fields.  I have a lot of anthologies, so my favourite feature is the ablility to seach contents.  I admit, I haven't tried many other programs but I'm happy with BookCat so I haven't felt the need to.  Anyone else a user?

Such a wonderfully simple program   :)  but I must be doing something wrong.   :(  What I need is for the close button to be disabled when I open the program, but I can't seem to get it to do that.  It will disable once open (yea!!), I add it as a rule, but next time I open it it is enabled.  Poopie.  Suggestions?

NoClose looks great...but I can't get it to start with the program, even added as a rule.  So if I can remember to "noclose" it on starting, I could probably remember to save.  Am I doing something wrong with the program, or was it not designed that way?  Thanks,

I cannot remember to save.  I have a program I update frequently, but doesn't ask me to save before I close it.  Arg!  (shouted many, many times upon opening said program).  So what I need is either something that won't let me close it without saving, or upon opening triggers another program that at least reminds me to save.  Has this been done?  Is it doable?  Can someone save me from more hoarse throats caused by frustration?  Thanks!

Wow, my pin looks lonely...
Heads up, Darwin, you're getting competition for rulership of Canada!

Good call!  It's a painting called "the meditative rose", but I can't remember its year.  Sounds like you'll have an exciting summer!  Have fun!

Darwin:  You teach intro anthropology?  That sounds really interesting (NOT being sarcastic!)  Is "Ishi" or something like that required reading?  I took a (very) basic course ages ago, and worked in a museum that contained artifacts soley found in the area (southern Manitoba).  For such a small place it was neat to see all the history there.  Granted, it was mostly Native arrowheads and such, but there were quite a few cultural pieces too and things like tent rings and such.  I'm guessing your line of work doesn't touch on any of these areas (based only on the fact I would like them too!)....but I thought I'd check.

Whee!  This is fun... I didn't think anyone would care.  But considering I put it as a challenge, I should have known better with this bunch!  I'll give you a clue...he was a painter who once said:
There is only one difference between a madman and me.  I am not mad.

ps-any Douglas Adams fan in this "get to know each other" thread?

     I'm not usually a poster, but everyone else seems to be sharing, goes!  I just was over at the age poll thread, and it informed me that I'm probably younger than everyone reading this!  So much for worrying about creeping up on thirty.(shhhh) 
     As for life in a nutshell, let's go the computer route.  My high school was exclusively mac...that was where I learned to tYpE, work with office stuff, surf with Navigator, and was even able to take a course on C (a pretty big deal for a small-town high school ten years ago!). 
     So, computers are neat.  I toodle off to college to take Media Production thinking I'm going to be some kind of journalist. Then I find out--the college is in the real world and THEY USE PCS!!!!! I had never touched one before, and now I had to design and render animations.  Ack!  I don't know how many of you can relate to the utter helplessnes of sitting in front a pc for the first time and being totally clueless...when you know how to write basic programs!  It was surreal.
     Eventually got a job at a tv station, where I was forced to use windows 3.1 and we still cut commercials using beta.  Then went digital.  New cameras, new tapes, new editing suite which consisted of...yes, a mac.  Sigh. 
     Now, I'm no longer part of that world (happy little housewife in northern Canada), but between my husband and me our house has three computers, working on a fourth (he wants to "upgrade to vista", read "excuse to build a new computer", but I'll get his old to use as a linux box.  Yea me!!).  I love scouring for useful freeware, and I think software in general is pretty cool (my husband has a t-shirt that says "I love my geek"--says it all, doesn't it?).  I'd love to play with coding, scripting, re-learning everything I've fogotten in C, but I don't know where to start.  Someday, I guess.  I'm definately not afraid to tackle anything new! 
     This turned into a much, much longer post than I intened...thank you if you made it this far!  And just to throw this out there...kudos to anyone who can identify the source of my avatar!
