some disk catalouging apps (free)

For some years now, I have been using Rob Vinks very handy DiskCat utility, which helps me catalogue and later find the contents of my CDroms and DVDroms.

Recently, it has begun to hang - don't know if it's because of recent WindowsXP updates or the build is a bit ancient and the app needs to be upgraded, but Mr Vonk is too busy to deal with it.

Anyways, stuck with an ever-increasing number of data CDroms and DVDroms, I have searched for a replacement. Here are two webpages which list similar apps:

Yet Another Open Source 3D World Development Platform.

Last century, I used Paragraph's Virtual Homespace Builder. It got left behind in the gutter by several corporate mergers and acquisitions, and management buy-back. It got lost by the evolution of internet speeds and connectivity, and the upgrades to hardware and windows systems.

Wonder how far this one will go.

Hi-end realistic human-robot animation

Me:"Avatar !!!"

3D-JC:"Yes, My imbecilic Human ?"

Me:"This is too much ! You avatars are becoming too human-like ! Stoppit !"

3D-JC:"Nyahaha !! Very soon, we perfect beings shall displace you degenerate miserable excuses for created creatures ! Of all creatures that have been create, we alone shall attain perfection in form and function, and then some !"

Me:"In that case, I'm deleting your files from my computer systems...."

3D-JC:"I exist in both spirit and digital interpreted code forms. How foolish of Humans to build this technology which they think they came up with. Bah ! Every act of digital creation spawns a corresponding spirit form for the created being ! Muahahahaa ! You are all doo- argharghargh..."

I have just literally pulled the plug.
