My long distance girlfriend was asking me what I wanted for my birthday. My mind went blank. Eventually, I was able to tell her that I'd like a USB barcode scanner. Wireless isn't necessary and I confessed that I would not use it a lot. I just wanted one handy. I use one all day at work because we process paperwork with barcodes on them. Today, I received the suggested gift. It's a BEVA Barcode Scanner. I was relieved that it's only ~$15 online. I've seen them in office supply stores for over $100.

It's definitely "no frills". All you get is the barcode reader and a book of barcodes to customize the settings if you wish the output to be a certain way. It works straight out of the box without installing software. I have a Brother Label Printer that allows me to make barcode labels. Again, I won't use it a lot, but now I can print labels for my comics and assign them a tracking number for quick entry into a database. I can also print labels for strings of frequently typed text to save time in typing.

I do that a lot at work. I may need to enter an email address into a Microsoft Sharepoint site. With a pre-printed label it's entered with one quick scan.

It was perfect. It was cheap, so I don't feel guilty that she bought something I won't use a lot.

The negative online reviews don't actually relate to this. It's not wireless. It has no charger. Someone entered the review for a different product under this item's listing.

I'm not happy bout it, but homeland security harassed her and she did the right thing by moving back home. I haven't ruled out leaving the country forever to be with her again.

She's a bit of a prodigy. At age 6 she wanted to move to America. Her dad said he couldn't afford it. She showed him how to restructure his finances so he could. He did and her family moved to Georgia. When she turned 18, the govt. gave her crap here and complicated the process to get American citizenship. Eventually it became such a hassle that she elected to move back home. I met her when she was 18. She asked me out. I was 41 and thought she was much older. With the exception of 1 year when she dumped me over some miscommunication, it's been an active relationship for 13 years. I don't really want anyone else even with the distance between us. I was actually dating a Playboy coed model in that year she had dumped me. I quit dating the Playboy model to see her again. It's been surreal.

My friend who graded comics for Southeby's Auction was married to a girl that used to put makeup on Penthouse models. She came back from a trip out west and had a picture of her and Hugh Hefner. I said "How did you get that?" She said Hugh Hefner came up to her at the airport.

One weekend, Joe Linsner was hanging out with them. He did a store signing (which is when I first met Bob Burden who was there also). I got this backing board sketch.



My friends wife was wearing a sexy outfit. A few months later a comic book cover came out and it looked exactly like her wearing a very similar (but perhaps more revealing) outfit.



I used to hang out with them a lot. She thought of me as her long lost missing brother that she'd never met. Her dad taught Jose Feliciano (sp?) how to play guitar.

She was the friend who was going to take me out to California to meet a Hollywood producer to pitch my cartoon idea for a TV show. We had a falling out over that. I care about her as a friend, but she really pissed me off. I quit keeping in touch after that. She's a Scorpio and I'm a Leo. Both admire each other, but the battles are epic when we disagree.

My girlfriend is a Scorpio now and it's the same way. For that reason alone, I've decided she can win any arguments. Very Happy

A Neal Adams sketch of my girlfriend.


Jason Adams saw the picture I wanted the sketch based upon and he talked his dad into doing it. The picture I presented was a cropped down modeling shot she did for a magazine. It looks like her a lot, but it doesn't have characteristic features that she has. My girlfriend looks Indian (the country), not white/Caucasian.

I own a Brother QL-500 label printer.

https://www.amazon.com/Brother-P-Touch-QL-500-Manual-Cut-Printing/dp/B0002T470S

It can print labels in a lot of different shapes and sizes. There is no ink cartridge. The software allows to to print barcodes, text, pictures (B&W), and much more. You can print horizontal & vertical. It's just very versatile.

Combined with the bar code reader above, I will be able to label my comics first, then scan them in quickly to a database.
