New Year's Revolution

[ #2155 ]

Oh well, as everybody seems to be making resolutions to use the journal system more so I think I'll join in. One objective this year is to finish off something that I've been playing with for years now. What I want to do is create something that will let me catalogue all my books/CDs/etc. I first started trying to do this in the dim and distant MS days with Access but I never got it to the point where it either worked o.k. or I was happy with what it did. So this year I'm going to do it using Perl/XML/PostgreSQL or similar.

User requirements:

Add new books as I acquire them
Search by title, author
Print pretty catalogues
Produce simple lists that can be downloaded to the Palm

Other requirements:

Have fun doing it.
Learn more about XML.
Learn more about DBI.
Make it extensible.
Make it future proof.

Seems reasonable?
