People that know me, know that I have a rather nice collection of DVD’s. And I buy on very regular base new ones. Some times a movie that is just released (in that case I really wanted the movie). But very often it are older movies which I buy cheap at the weirdest places as super markets or second hand fairs (online or not).
Recently it happens more and more often that I buy DVD’s that I already have
So has my friend Dave, who visited me this weekend, one of the “Back to the Future’ movies. And Sanne? I have for you a DVD of the animation movie Final Fantasy. I am sure you like it.
So I have been thinking about a away to prevent (or make it at least less unlikely) that I will buy DVD’s that I have already. The best way would to have a database with all the DVD’s I own with me. Caring me laptop always with me is a bad idea. But I have always my phone with me. Now is the smart phone that I got from Marion more or less a very small computer. So I looked for a small database for my phone.
I found something better. The program I found can read MS Access tables on my laptop and sent them by Bluetooth or USB in its own format to my smart phone. On the phone is a viewer installed to search through the table. A very handy solution…
And I found this way that I have a big pile of DVD’s that I have watched yet :)
I think I might do this as well for my “Suske en Wiske” boeken. I have many of them and I in the mood to start to collect them again :)
