    Sounds like a symptom of a hoarder... Did you buy Beanie Babies and Tickle Me Elmo Dolls when they were selling out too?

    ^ Though I don't generally hoard things, I still have a few spindles of CDRs I got off Ben's free after rebate a few years back. It made sense at the time because I also gained a few free after rebate CDRW drives.

    It's a shame DVDRW drives never became FAR when BD replaced DVD, like CDRW did when DVDRW came out.

    As far as 30MB drives for $500, I think Tandy 1000 pre-dates that a bit, as that capacity per $ was around the 80286 era, IIRC.
