Hi paul (et al)

I also have ~15 spindles of 50 x printable verbatim CD's similar to what 
I used for last year's SFD disks. I'm happy to pass these onto you guys 
if needed, let me know and I'll confirm how many I have and how much 
they'll set you back and I can drop them into the post either tomorrow 
or monday.
