I'm relatively new to LT. I have 2 Cue-Cats and I can't use either one of them because they don't have the right connector, neither one is USB and I'm on a MacBookPro (wish LT utilized my iSight camera like Delicious does). But anyway, I've been cataloging my own library manually. Are Cue-Cats mandatory for flash-mobbing?

When everyone starts working, are they all online to the same account? Or are they working offline somehow and then everything gets uploaded to the one account at the end of the day?

OK I lied (a little). Now that I'm home and looking at the CueCats, one is USB (the one I paid for thankfully). The other one I found as a cast off at the office and it has a PS2 connector (I guess it gets plugged into a keyboard or something?).

Another question I thought of is, is a wi-fi connection required?

Everyone works on the same account. Wifi is incredibly helpful, although not technically required.
