One way to keep tabs on stuff you've loaned out

I have the usual collection of books, DVDs, video games, and so on like you would expect. Most of them are not in active use, and I have no problem just storing these things until someone or something needs to borrow one. This also means that I frequently have quite a few items in active circulation, residing with friends and relatives instead of sitting on a shelf at my place.

I used to just try to remember all of them, but it got annoying. I decided I needed something a little more persistent than that and wrote something to keep it online. It's just a list of things and a list of people, and a way to mark them as checked out or returned. That's it.

I'm going to try opening it up to the world just in case anyone else finds it useful. If someone enjoys it, great! If nobody else needs such a strange tool, that's okay, since I'll still be using it.
