    Was great to catch up with Oz at BETT and MLH is truly great.

    If you have a Linux box handy, you can use kbarcode.

    Just to wave the MLH flag a bit more.

    It's easy to install and setup. Oz was great at helping me iron out a few issues and quick to respond. I also had a chat with OZ at BETT2009 on Thursday and I am really looking forward to the asset management and barcode being added to MLH.

    Slightly off topic, but has anyone got a recomendation for a wireless / bluetooth barcode scanner. Cheers.

    Datalogic QuickScan Mobile

    Doesn't seem too bad, allthough I presume you need to move through the helpdesk to the correct part to scan/enter the barcode that wireless may or may not help, allthough I suppose it still beats wrapping a wire everywhere.

    We have a keyboard wedge type one in the library so I'm going to test with that for now and then budget for another scanner.

    hmm just found this one as well:

    Motorola / Symbol Technologies CS1504 Cordless Barcode Scanner

    You can scan up to 150 and then download them that might be handy for doing a room as long as you know you started at pc 1 say and went round in order.

    When plugged in via usb it acts just like a normal scanner as well.

    In the meantime I'll explore using a barcode scanner with our own solution so thanks again to Angry Technician for your useful posts.

    If anyone else has any further thoughts regarding this subject I'd certainly be interested to know them.

    You said the new version of MLH has added the asset management barcode reading function. How was it? I am considering update our asset management system.
