For The Love Of MARC

February 11, 2008

Today, I felt very librarian-y. I spent hours downloading, uploading, importing, exporting and editing MARC files, tweaking settingsĀ and then going through the process all over again. I might have had some trouble trying to keep my head from exploding (but that might also be because my cell phone/PDA DIED), but know that librarianship can’t get much better. Ok, I admit to being a bit sarcastic. Actually, I did enjoy mucking around with the MARC records once I was able to get all of the settings right. I don’t really want to admit that the settings might not be right and that I won’t find out until sometime tomorrow. Big sighs!!!!!!


The Agony Continues

February 11, 2008

My Palm Treo bit the dust – the cell phone portion will no longer work. I can either pay $50 to get a refurbished Treo or I can get a new phone with a new two-year activation. I’m not changing wireless providers, so I’m not opposed to signing a new agreement. I’m not sure I want to get the refurbished phone because now I’m annoyed (I have only had the phone for six months maybe). I want Windows Mobile OS which limits my choices. I guess I’m going to have to sleep on it – and go visit another wireless store tomorrow.
