Yesterday was one of the laziest Sundays I had seen in a while. Did absolutely nothing. Saturday was my Company’s Annual Day, so was busy shooting pictures at the event. Unfortunately the venue had a shamiana which made everything too dark for my camera. Flash was of little help but since I shoot RAW, was able to get some mileage out of the snaps. Well, that’s enough for a company annual day. It is not my b’day party or something :p
One good thing I did yesterday, apart from beginning to re-read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (it is not spelt as maintain – ence, as I always thought!), was that I began to catalogue all the music/software/backups that I have on CD/DVD. Considering that I have close to 200 disks, it is a Herculean task maintaining all that data! But I found this really cool app called “Where Is It?“. Makes cataloguing a breeze. You can have thumnails for images, make a note of whom you’ve lent disks too, print reports etc. Friends in college had introduced me to a similar program called SuperCat which I used a long time ago. The Where Is It site had this comparison between different cataloguing software, and good marketing got me using it I’d surely recommend this little program. So I spent most of last evening inserting, cataloguing, and removing CDs. Imagine doing that 200 times! Very boring, but best suited for the day it was. The week ahead should be interesting, with one holiday and a trip to Tirupathi coming up.
PS: There is also a freeware, reader-only version of WhereIsIt.
