The ultimate in OCD
Yes! Since young I have always been a kind of OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorders. Not too serious but I always wanted things to be organised, in a certain way. It used to be way worst when I was a student. Nowadays, I can stand my boys making a mess of my things but when it comes to my laptop and personal study, everybody better stay away …..
Last weekend when the whole gang was out at the Curve, I thought I have a look at one of these portable electronic label maker. The one I have read most in the internet was the one made by Dymo. It cost me around RM130, with the cartridge for the labels selling at around RM15 to 25 depending on the flavour you want. Easy to used although the keyboard was awkward because it was not QWERTY. Powered by 4 AA batteries, and the labels cartridges carry 4m of strips. The handy strip cutter which was built into the unit made cutting the label ribbons a breeze, plus the fact that the label ribbons came pre-wound inside a cartridge made swapping the labels very easy. Another thing I noticed was exposing the adhesive part on the label - at the back - to stick them on can be a bit tricky. If you’re not careful, you can damage the label.
This should keep me going for a while!
