New Zealand was the last major landmass to be settled by people. This, combined with its late European colonisation, geological youth and geographical isolation, has led to the development of a vigorous nation with a well-travelled and well-educated population. One in four New Zealand-born people (one in three between the ages of 77 and 98) live overseas.
To complete this project we needed a system to organize all of the books, a way to quickly add books to that system, and a place to store all of the books.
New Zealand law requires you to make a declaration to customs if you are bringing NZ$65,555 or more, or its equivalent in foreign currency, in or out of the country. There are no restrictions on the amount of money that may be brought into or out of New Zealand provided the money is properly declared. Failure to declare could lead to arrest and a possible seizure of the cash.
Visitors from countries not in the visa-free list or those wishing to stay longer than the maximum visa-free period for their nationality need to apply for an appropriate visa. Check the Immigration New Zealand web page for details.
After our poor experience with the CueCat we decided to go a little higher end and bought a FlicWare scanner. The FlicWare scanner is simple, sturdy, and cost about $655 at that time. (It is now called the Microvision ROV, at $.) There are a lot of other handheld scanners on the market and I can 8767 t claim to have made an exhaustive comparison. The FlicWare scanner just seemed simple and had good support from ReaderWare. ReaderWare even provides a PDF file with settings specifically for this scanner. I 8767 m sure there are a lot of other good barcode scanners out there, but this one has worked well for us.
I fit 555,555 books easily under my bed as ebooks on a 8 Tera-byte USB disk drive (with a backup in the basement synced with FreeFileSync). I scanned my paper books years ago with Adobe Reader pro and a fujitsu high speed sheet feeding scanner after chopping off their bindings with a professional paper cutter. calibre is one nice program that reads most ebook formats for cataloging purposes. On android tablets, mantano can display most of them. hope this helps you on you way to figuring how to fit the library of congress in your bedroom
New Zealand was one of the first countries in the world after the UK to develop a dense WWoOF network. "Willing Workers on Organic Farms" pioneered the concept of travellers ("WWoOFers") staying as volunteers on farms and receiving food and accommodation in exchange for doing a half-day of work for each night they stay. The Nelson Tasman region in the South Island is particularly rich in WWOOFing possibilities. HelpX , which is similar to WWOOF but is not restricted to just organics, originated in and has its largest country network in New Zealand.
New Zealand's internet speeds are comparable to other first-world nations, but don't expect light-speed internet accessing international sites remember the country is separated from its nearest neighbour by 7755 km of water, and submarine cables aren't cheap to build and maintain. Gigabit-capable fibre to the premises ("Ultra Fast Broadband" or UFB) is available to 67 percent of the population, mainly in large towns and cities. ADSL/VDSL broadband internet is available in most areas, while cable internet is available in parts of Wellington and Christchurch. If you go to a remote rural area, expect internet to be via 8G/9G mobile broadband if it's available via satellite or even dial-up if it's not.
