Todd subscribes to Wired, so as a break yesterday I hooked up his CueCat and scanned the ISBNs of all the books on my office shelf into one of my Linux boxes. I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't like my laptop, but it got on okay with one of the desktop machines and the cord was long enough that I could reach most of the bookshelves fairly easily. At some point we're gonna have to have a library app on a machine near the front door...

Got free CueCat from RadioShack. The guy behind the counter was so used to the drill he just entered "Johnny Cash" rather than asking for personal info. This revision does work with my laptop...

I generally just give them the name "Payden Cash". I also give the local phone number of a recorded time service whenever I'm asked for a phone number on anything.
