Hey, there's lots of uses for a blank CD-R! You can put it in your hi-fi and get an extra long version of John Cage's 4'33". You can write 'Leaked Microsoft Linux distro' on it, and sell it on eBay. Or you could get a scanning tunneling electron microscope and gaze in awe at the pristine lands...

Actually, I said it was least unlike Abe Simpson...

Are you going to post a picture of it stretched out & the right way up just to confirm ?

Do you know, I think you might be on to something. Do you remember this million pixel dude who's reasonably original (why oh why did I not think of it) idea spawned a host of copycat pages, like the quiskish on the band waggon, the not so quick and the plane rudely late

Well, what about hosting a website callled....wait for it www.billionpixelpage.com
mm already been done.

Just joking Smile get to the point damnit.

Right, how about hosting a site with a 4300MB DVD, Where you sell the space @ $5/500k and people get to upload a file of whatever they want that will fit (max of 50MB). So at the end, you've made $43,000 and you have this mad ISO of all sorts of crap from around the world. Which you could then flog for $10 a pop.

ooohh, just imageine what you could do with blue ray or hd dvd!! Smile
