A large collection o' more on the CueCrap. Some very nice points in this one... "I don't want it, how do I send it back?" "You can't send it back; keep it and do whatever you want with it." "You threatened me for 'doing what I wanted with it'."

I hooked up my Cat last night and scanned a couple of UPC's with the help of this site. I have yet to see a license agreement, much less agree to one. There doesn't seem to be any sort of printed license agreement in the baggie Radio Shack gave me, and I haven't bothered to use the CD.

Yeah; I was *real* surprised by the collection of symbologies this thing speaks, speaking as someone who's ever *heard* the word 'symbology' before. :-)

The link to Stephen Satchell's site is good mining, too.

My favorite two CueCat links to date:

How to disable the barcode encryption, making your CueCat into a run-of-the-mill barcode scanner with pure ASCII output.

If you received your CueCat free in the mail, Digital Convergence cannot restrict your use of it in any way; turns out that there are very specific laws that govern uses and rights when it comes to free gifts sent using the postal service.

Can anyone say bankruptcy?

Well, someday, anyway.
