I can't write computer software, but I'd like to catalog my yarn stash, whereabouts of my knitting needles, etc. I tried printing my own barcodes on my inkjet with barcode software but got nothing readable.
Most of the sites I'm finding have been software writers' musings from 2000.
I have successfully created, printed out and re-scanned some barcodes. See my LibraryThing CueCat help sheet for some samples (and some instructions I think - I forget what's in there).
I set up a mail merge in Word and a consecutive numbering worksheet in Excel and can now print out barcodes for all the odd balls of yarn people have given me or for which I tossed the skein label.
I'll probably find that I've duplicated a lot that will be available on Ravelry.com when it comes out of beta, but I've LEARNED how.
Thanks for a very well written PDF, GreyHead! Couldn't have done this without you!
