A lot depends on how there treated in transit. Can give you a variation on round.

Some sought of cylindrical crystal form might be better, at least in transit. Except for mag transit.

Well, we're certainly seeing a lot more posts from you just lately fish-face. Is it because Wigan are actually winning some matches now and you've been lifted out of your depression?

Very Happy

"round disks" is as much of an oxymoron as "visual displays"

Mind you, maybe AOL are working on square disks....

And thinking about it, I have some oblong "business card" CDROMs

and WMsheep: you can get mini DVDs that store 1.3 Gb, pound shop are selling them in packs of 4 for 1

Further on that, i think a solid rectangular object would be better. With some depth so that it can't be seen as a type of disc. They could be tested by getting dock workers trucks to drive over them. If they pass tahat then of to sale. Similar to the gizmos they use on Star Trek.
