Kymberlie's Collections

A few weeks ago I blogged that I was coveting Collectorz.com's special bundle which I went ahead and bought after thinking about it for a day or two.

Last week the scanner came in, so I after an initial problem with some movies not loading into the scanner properly, within a couple of hours I'd scanned about 320 movies (and manually entered about twenty movies that had the bar code covered by stickers) and created this site. Pretty slick, huh?

I've got about thirty or forty DVDs at Ben's house that I need to pick up and scan and I'm missing about another dozen movies or so (Arsenic and Old Lace, The Day After Tomorrow, Shrek, The Evil Dead 2, etc.) which is driving me nuts, but except for any new movies I purchase, you can see my full movie collection, here, which is currently 341 movies.

I needed some help to figure out how to edit their scripts so that my own Amazon Associates ID was used, but now when you click through to one of the detail pages (like this one), any thing purchased through there will generate me a referral fee. Feel free to make your Amazon purchases through there. ;-)

I also scanned one book shelf of my books and ended up with this collection of 144 books. It's mostly the ones that I've purchased over the last six months or so and still need to read, so this is far from complete. If I had to guess, I'd say that I probably have around 500 or 600 paperbacks.

I've also got the software for CDs, but I really wanted to get the movies and my recently purchased books scanned, so that's a project for another day. I've got this page - Kymberlie's Collections - set up as an index for these sites, so I'm sure once I start scanning CDs, they'll end up there as well.

So, I'd definitely have to say that the scanner and the software was well worth the $200 I spent. The only thing I would really like to see different is some better documentation for their templates since right now I'm having a hard time bending them to my will.
