I have blanks here ready to go, I paid $20 for three of them a year or two 
ago, I won't do that again! I just had a look online for blanks and I can get 
them on sale for $70 (50 2.4x dl). I don't think I'll go for that since I 
just don't need so many. Have to shop around for better prices on dl media 
for sure.

Maybe a .jigdo for those who want the dl disks would work?
