About sofistes.net

This blog is a way for me to collect interesting stuff into one place. I'm not planning on making this a confession booth of any sort, just post random interesting web sites if I feel the need to comment on them (otherwise I just add them to my del.icio.us page) and comment on other stuff that is worth it (books, TV programs, games, CD's etc).

Knowing myself I doubt I will be updating this too often but we'll see...

DVD collection

I just tested out a nice Firefox extension called DVDProfiler Companion (there is also a stand-alone version available). It creates a website from your DVDProfiler collection. Intervocative Software (makers of DVDProfiler) does offer you a place to keep your collection but unfortunately you only have about two different choices for the look (the one I selected is the better one..). The trick with the Companion is you can use the skin you use in DVDProfiler and there are lots of skins available at the Intervocative website.

I used a skin called Darkskin - English by story_teller I picked up from the DVDProfiler webpage and I think the result is pretty nice. There are a few small issues using the Companion, like the need to click each individual image that is part of the skin (totalling to quite a lot in this case) but overall it was smooth going. The images look crap because the unregistered version of DVDProfiler only support low resolution images. I really should register it as it's only $29,95..

Doug, the creator of the Companion has also written a nifty little application for DVDProfiler with which you can download IMDB cast and crew information directly into DVDProfiler, called DVDFolks. Makes entering those long lists a lot easier!

There are other interesting applications and even PHP enchanced skins available on Doug's website for DVDProfiler, maybe I'll try them out at some point.

Funnily enough this is categorised under "Stuff on the site" even though there are five links outside this site and just one to this site but this is about that one link. But this post is about that link rather than others.
