DARNIT! We'll be down that way in 2 weeks, (we're closer to Cleveland), and we 
have "immutable" plans for this weekend. Well, thanks for mentioning it, 
anyway. I'm sure our respective "Marys" would get along splendidly. :-)

That pretty well puts the "kibosh" to anything close to 10-cents, doesn't it? 

Mine are costing me about $1.50 (for CD-R's) to $3.50 (for RW's), and if that 
triples, I'll be more prone to erasing and rewriting the CD-RW's! I hope 
they've thought of that. :-)

Best regards, and have a great Show!--Lynn
