CellarTracker is great for managing your collection, but the wine list feature never really made me happy. The output is pretty generic and boring. For a while, I manually edited the HTML CellarTracker spit out to make it a little more presentable, but I still wasn’t satisfied. So I decided to go all out and connect InDesign with CellarTracker to build a wine list that’s much nicer looking with far better typography than HTML could ever produce1. It’s pretty cool — all I have to do is click a couple of times in InDesign and I have a completely formatted and totally up to date wine list. Here’s how it works.
We’re seriously considering replacing most of the carpet (and a bit of wood) on the first floor of our house with wood. We’ve been looking at lots of samples, and we think we have it narrowed down to these two. They’re very similar, but there are some differences. We just can’t choose.
Which do you prefer?

This post is an experiment with HTML5 video. If you have a reasonably modern browser (not including IE), it should work for you. If it doesn’t, you can see the video on Vimeo too. Let me know in the comments what your browser is if you can’t see the video (unless it’s IE, which I know doesn’t work).
