one kind of code recognized by my cuecat is "UPA". When I make notes about products, I scan the UPC code (using "cat.py":http://www.beau.lib.la.us/~jmorris/linux/cuecat/cat.py among the "linux cuecat tools":http://www.beau.lib.la.us/~jmorris/linux/cuecat/). I scan stuff when I buy it and add it to OPKSNet too. *note: as usual in Wiki pages, the title is linked to a list of backlinks, i.e. places where UPACode is used*. UPC codes seem to be operated by the "Uniform Code Council":http://www.uc-council.org/ . I'd really like to see more linux support stuff (e.g. linux hardware database (oops; went poof) er.. "linux hardware":http://www.linuxhardware.org/ ) indexed by UPC code. I'd like to be able to do apt-search NNNNN and see debian packages that support the piece of hardware show up.

Hmm... I wonder if I can make an archive/backup copy of that database. LotsOfCopiesKeepsStuffSafe...
