Put the scanner through it's paces at the weekend. Managed to scan in ~150 titles in a few hours. With a pile of DVDs next to me, it took hardly any time to scan them in. Most of the time was spent making piles of DVDs to scan. Might see how long the laptop can last without mains power and go wireless so that I don't have to move the DVDs to me.
The only technical problem I found was a bunch of DVDs I got cheap from Tescos a few months back had dodgy barcodes on them. Dodgy in the sense that they seemed to be used several times for different discs. I guess Tescos was using them for pricing rather than product identification.
Other than that, I did pretty much nothing of note except rack up yet more time off in lieu.
I'm glad Film Four is free now. It'll be interesting to see if they show much worth watching.
