Now _that_ is a nifty idea! I have a couple of those "cue cat" scanners that
Radio Shack was giving away some time back, and also recently aquired a
similar device, and since I'm not in the habit of going around putting
barcodes on stuff here I hadn't thought that I had a particular use for them.
But printing a strobe disc or even a wraparound barcode for rim or shaft
speed measurement sounds like it might definitely be useful...
