About My Library
Books. DVDs. Music (cassettes, vinyl, CDs, and nowadays mp3s). They need to be organised. And then we can find things. And then we can start (as with the tagging here) finding things we didn't even know we were looking for.

I'm an Oracle Database programmer by profession. I never understand the people who want to throw information away, because they think they don't need it any more. Just tag it with a date, and you can ignore it now, but look at it again later, when you want to analyse historic trends.

Catalogue everything!

It's often said that a sign of being "anal" is keeping your records in alphabetical order, but surely that depends on how many records you've got. If you have two records and keep checking them, while muttering "Abba, then ZZ Top, that's still right, thank goodness," you've got something wrong. But I've got a room full of records, and thought I kept them in alphabetical order so I can find the one I want, but apparently it means I've got a problem with my arse.

On the other hand, be very wary about other people who want to catalogue you. Who knows when somebody will manage to tie disparate data sources together, and start mining them for information about you that you didn't even know existed?
(Can you say "Identity Card" and "National Identity Database"?)
About Me
I'll read anything you put in front of me (I think). If I'm given free choice though, I'll take science fiction, fantasy or horror.
