Catalog site cataloging niche catalog sites?

Is there a site that catalogs catalog websites? I'm thinking of sites such as Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields, Misericords of the World, and Bridge Hunter. I could swear I once saw a site listing such sites. I want them all!

MS Word / Excel 2011 for Mac catalog merge mystery

I have a batch of mixed-format data including long-form text fields, hyperlinks, number and plain text in an Excel doc. I have assembled a Word catalog merge file intended to allow me to proof the data manually. There are 42 records. On merge, the output document results in what appears to be the correct number of pages and records. However, records 28-42 do not appear to place any data in the destination document. [more inside]

Looking for software to catalog work notes

I write a lot of notes for my work, which I type up to keep for my records. My current way to organize these notes is as separate files per day, labeled with the date and a descriptive title. This is decent, but doesn't allow me to easily reference old notes by topic, especially when there are numerous individual references under a single broader topic. Are there programs to help catalog notes and journals by themes, or cross-reference topics, in a vague database format? I'm working in Windows.

Online "flipping page" catalog viewer software recommendation

I'm looking for a "flipping page" online catalog viewer for print catalogs. Hoping to find something that will work for iPad, iPhone and Android. Ideally I'd like something self-hosted, but that is not a deal breaker. The ability to add image map-like links to URLs is needed. The source file is a PDF built in InDesign.

Her Permanant Record: Why did the LOC Know Her Real Name?

On last night's History Detectives, they were tracking down the real author and backstory of Diana: A Strange Autobiography (1939). During that investigation, Tukufu Zuberi went to the Library of Congress (paper) Card Catalog, and a slightly altered version of the author's real name was listed there after the published author's name. This leads me to several questions about LOC cataloging c. 1939: [more inside]

Help me remember a catalogue/company.

I'm trying to remember the name of a company from which I received a catalogue sometime back in 1996-1999. They sold adventure/retro clothing/gear in sort of a J. Peterman style, but the catalogue presentation was more Orvis-y. The clothes/merchandise could also be compared to Abercrombie and Fitch from when it was an expedition/outdoor outfitter and not aimed at teens. I remember one catalogue had a picture of an classic open car and they were participating/sponsoring in some sort of road rally or driving journey re-creation. [more inside]

Best Software (Free or Cost) to Catalog Divx Movies on a Mac

I am looking to catalog my DVD library (mostly of DivX movies). I own an IMac. Is Delicious Monster the way to go? I want to be able to simply enter the title of the movie and have it come up with the real box art and keep it in A-Z or numerical order. No more no less. I emailed customer service and they never responded so I am consulting the Metafilter Oracle on this one. If there is anything cheaper or free, I am open to that, as well. Until then....a loonnnnnnng Excel spreadsheet. Thanks for your time and have a good Halloween weekend, folks.

Personal Cataloging Categories

I am interested in creating a pseudo-scientific catalog of personal traits, both quantitative and qualitative, but concrete rather than subjective.

Help me find this great home electronics catalog company, last seen by me in the late 80s...

I'm trying to remember the name of a really great home electronics company who I believe was catalog only, that I last knew about in the late 80s, when I ordered some dbx brand bookshelf speakers, and denon cd and amp (which I still own and are running strong to this day!) The catalogs came to my parents house in Santa Barbara, and they had all this really well selected gear, with both narrative and technical descriptions. The narrative felt like an enthusiast, but not snobby high end enthusiast. The company's name was, I believe, two syllables, something like Redken, but I know that's not it. Any idea what company I'm talking about, and if they still exist?
