I must confess that now I have started to use it, I can think of dozens of things I could have used it for in the last ten years. Pretty stupid of me really, not to check it out, as back in the late eighties I was a huge fan and heavy user of DOS Lotus Agenda for storing and linking random notes.
I've always known that OneNote had potential, but really only ever used it a couple of times for managing some smaller projects. Good job on finding an elegant no-code solution!
As for cataloging music, I started a project a decade ago to do this with the intent being to build a website on the company webserver so that I could access my content across all devices from anywhere. Sort of a web-based personal jukebox. For album artwork, I let WMP do most of the work with a success rate of around 98% of finding the correct artwork via the 'Update Media' feature. Due to the way I setup the folders, I was able to link the album art to the album and store it in a database with all the tracks, artists, etc. using the MP3 tags. I lost interest in it when I was able to get a mobile device with decent storage and never finished the project.

I am something of an audiophile, and I far prefer that music goes through as few stages as possible between the original and my ears. I didn't start to stream any music until I found a good source of classical music streamed in FLAC on the web. My system is rather analytical, and I can definitely hear the difference between that and MP3. As a result, I prefer to listen to the original CD, although I have ripped some my vinyl to FLAC.
Last week I went to Italy to program a robot cell...
All went very well and the job was finished as expected, but... My office 365 2 factor authentication decided to stop working, that left me without Outlook and Teams in my PC.
Arrived home and tried to get in touch with Microsoft through chat, they recommended me to change my admin password, which i did (Curiously I could not log in, but change the password, go figure). Then Office apps stopped working in my phone too.
Yesterday (Monday) I called them, explained them the situation, and they promised they would call me. They did it only to tell me that they could not solve it as I was the sole administrator. But that someone would call me soon.
Today (Tuesday) I called them again, same history, same answers... still no call.
- 1 week without mail or Teams access.
- 2 days calling them.
- No answer.
Curiously my personal account works flawlessly.
It seems that if you travel your office 365 gets disconnected as a safety measure to avoid being hacked!
First time buying something on AliExpress... It came almost on time (maybe 10 days later than expected)...
The day after I got it from the post office the status of the parcel updated: Sorry, parcel is delayed, estimated date of delivery is updated.

Impressive camera for the price! I have a need for several of them to monitor my 20 ac lot in the desert. Last week I had a break-in, costing thousand$ in stolen goods, and damaging my 40' container and 27' travel trailer. I can't be there most of the time, but I could use a cheap way to monitor and capture video of intruders. The cops took a report, but even though I've left multiple messages for an additional report (I found more missing), the cops never return calls, nor does anyone answer the phone. This could be a solution, if I can figure out how to use them. I've had very little luck interpreting Chinese documentation or getting live tech support for things made there.
Documentation is a weak point of these Chinese camera's, it also seems the mentioned software for PC's only works on older Windows versions. The mobile apps are fine.
I could get live video from all my camera's using the free iSpy software, see: free-video-surveillance-software[^]
