Cule for Cats

I got my CueCat today. This is a barcode scanner that I'll be using to put my books on LibraryThing. It cost me £10 including postage from the US and worked first time. It requires no drivers either because it counts as a keyboard.

There is a snag that it exports data in a proprietory format but LibraryThing doesn't mind, and even better, this website has a little utility that decodes the data to text (or can run it through any scripts you care to write).
