So I've been amusing myself, in my spare moments, with tagging my tens of thousands of pictures. My collection has grown to the point where even the rigorous folder structure I use has become a detriment in many cases. So, I know that most photo formats support tagging, and Windows and other search tools support searching against the tags as well, so it makes sense. If I want to see some Brian Steele pics, I'd rather they were aggregated for me from the various suits I have pics of him in. ;)

However, one of the only handy ways I've found to tag multiple pics at once has been WLPG. And for a basic, free program, it's actually pretty good. It has some facial recognition built in, and so forth; pretty handy all around. Except when it's dealing with 10's of thousands of pics. It seems to be decidedly not-happy in that circumstance. And I'm quite sure I'm making it even less happy with things like my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pics. I've been doing facial recognition tagging on the various turtle heads. Yes, I'm doing it 'accurately', but I have to wonder if my antics are causing the gallery to break more often. After all, those suits look amazingly similar facially. Yes, yes, I know the suits were made individually and have slight variations and whatnot. But I somehow doubt that simplistic facial recognition tools will handle that correctly, and having 4 faces that look quite similar but are all tagged differently probably gives the software a minor stroke every time it gets to those directories. ;)

Well, that's annoying. I got a copy of Invelos' DVD Profiler, so I could track all my DVD library info, and potentially download the list to my PDA phone, so I wouldn't double-buy or lose track of movies that had been loaned to friends/family.

Yet, as I'm going through, trying to tag and highlight certain discs for certain (suit) actors, I realized that my 2 disc copy of Pan's Labyrinth never got added to the list, nor is it in the stacks with my other movies. Huh. Looks like my solutions came too late to salvage that 2 disc set. Tragic. Well, that's now top of my list to replace.
