      Thanks! Yes, I made them myself. And I have a few billion more card catalog cards left, just waiting for the next bout of inspiration.

      This is very cool. I was a page at the public library in my home town and spent a great deal of time in the card catalog. Thanks for sharing!

      Where did you find so many catalog cards? Thought there weren't any left in this digital age!

      Postscript - Definitely a goat.

      Biblien - They were a gift from a friend who was working at the library when it was demolishing its card catalog system. He was supposed to throw them all away, but he rescued a bunch, tied them into bundles with many little bows, and gave them to me as a gift. I still have tons left!

      Everyone else - Thank you!
