  more than 310 laserdiscs now

[moved from my LiveJournal, with some link fixes....]


well, all the half-price books stores are having their 20% off sale, so, we hit a couple in fort worth and grabbed a few new LaserDiscs, including some of the first Criterions, all movies we care nothing about (39 Steps, The Magnificent Ambersons, High Noon, and The Third Man), but, they were only like $6 a piece and in pretty good shape...
at this point, we have mostly what we want on laser now, except a few rare ones, so, there is rarely any stuff that makes us say 'wow'...

our collection looks a little something like this...



and that is before the new ones, which are about 15 or so... (our favorites are on the shelf, the rest are on the floor until we get some new shelves :P)

so, this latest buy brings our LaserDisc Database total to 310, and there are 10 or more that have no listing there yet, so, we need to submit the entries...
our database we keep on our Psion palmtops tracks our DVDs and LDs and it says we now have 404... sooner or later, i will put that db on the web...
we used to keep pages where we listed all our DVDs and LDs, but, when the inheritence came, we started buying them so fast it was work to keep them updated...


in other news, i am reading Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software by Charles Petzold and it is pretty amazing so far... i was with it word-by-word up until the 12th chapter where you build a binary calculator in your head... but, i am going to back up and come at it a bit slower (no pun intended), must have not grasped all the prerequisite knowledge or something...

anyway, damn fascinating so far...
