Gary Roberts replied to Gary Roberts's discussion Bento Anyone?
"Frank... I have a copy of Filemaker 6. Somewhere. And haven't used it in a few years. Bento, while a flat file database, seems very user friendly although missing the power of Filemaker. I can be lazy enough to want to find a template for…"

Bento Anyone?

Does anyone use Filemaker's Bento database software for cataloging their stuff? If not, what do you use... spreadsheets, database, suits, online storage?GarySee More

Gary Roberts replied to Virginia Caputo's discussion Do you have a website? What has that been like?
"I've run a number of websites for my own purposes for around 10 years. And a blog or three. It all comes down to marketing and branding, more than the creation of a website. The central problem is how to drive or attract people to your…"

Gary Roberts commented on David Fonville's blog post Buchanan and Breckenridge printer's block?

Profile Information

Interest in Ephemera
Dealer/Collector, Curator/Archivist
About Me:
Specializing in the ephemera, photographs and books of early tools, trades, crafts and industries. As a librarian and archivist, I tend to bring my work ethics into my avocational pursuits. The end result is a blog and a website devoted to my favorite topic... ephemera and old tools.

My other avocation is ignoring the 30 odd boxes of books in the basement that really need to be sold to make room for more Stuff...

In addition to the main Toolemera site, there is also a blog from whence I may choose to inflict my opinions upon an unsuspecting world:

Widening the circle

Silly me. I was looking for the TEN blog and neglected to look down. Here it is. I just added a post over at my blog, extolling the virtues of The Ephemera Network (whilst inflicting my overblown prose on the unwary). While most of my readers are woodworkers, even they pick up a book, or a trade catalog or... gasp... even a billhead on occassion. With luck, some new blood will be brought into the fold

Hi Gejus... thanks for adding me. It would be best to drop the email list as that is actually a group list rather then mine own! I put my list on hold for a while during yet another site rebuild. Thanks

Hi Gary,
I started new Groups for dealers per theme and took the liberty of adding you to the Group Book dealers.
I hope that is o.k.
Please check the text and let me know if you want any changes.

In the spirit of legal spamming, I added a post over at my blog to introduce people to The Ephemera Network...

My thanks for the invite. It's good to see a community of ephemerists assembling online. Amongst the tools and trades community, we have many blogs and forums within which to socialize, exchange stories, ask questions etc. etc. It's high time ephemerists became less ephemeral and more visible!

Hi Gary,
Welcome to this Network. Glad you are connected. A new tool to add more to your collection.
