Sheesh!  I gotta get the upgrade.  I tried to tell v9.1 to walk my dog and it put the leash on my goldfish.  Or is that a known bug?
I believe it's a known bug, though the latest version of WeiDU doesn't work correctly, either. The leash ended up on my cat, and you can imagine how well that went over.
                   Sounds like a bug to me. I think the problem here is that I don't have any pets myself, so in-house testing is difficult. How about this: just zip up your entire household and mail it to me. I'll unpack it here and try things out. With a few test-runs I should be able to get the leash on the dog instead. Hopefully the cat is known for its patience :-).

As for the bookshelf thing -- it looks like it's not organizing them, but for legacy reasons the default sort method is "editor first name ; ties broken by illustrator date of birth". The result looks random to most people. Specify "by genre ; ties broken by title" or some such. :-)

                   Thanks.  I'll do that.  

By the way, the 'genre' filter needs tweaking.  It put Aleister Crowley's 'Theory and Practice of Magick' in the Home Improvement section between 'Mix Grout Like a Pro' and 'The Ugly Shrubbery Guide.'  This almost made me miss the full moon the other night.

Damn!  I just organized my bookshelves by hand.  Next time I have some project around the house I'm just going to wait for a new version of WeiDU!

                   Ach, the very thought makes me tired. And to think I used to organize my LP's in very specific order *sigh* Honestly, move to laid back Phoenix and all my organizational skills went out the window.

Done. I included my husband, as he is often found on the same couch as the dog and cat, so you'll probably want to factor in his proximity as well.
