And just think, if you switched to MiniDisc, you wouln't be creating all that garbage from CD-R's that you have thrown out. Don't we get enough of that from AOL with their subscription mailings? BTW, I pay about $3 per CD-R (and $10 per CD-RW) because of the special CD's that an audio system CD burner requires, thanks to the RIAA. Even though I am recording programming that went into the public domain years ago, I still have to pay royalties to some unknown entity. Since I go through about 2 CD's worth of material a day, that would be about $1,500 a year -- and a lot of filled up landfills. If you are wondering why I don't just use the cheaper CDs and burn them on my computer. It's like you said: "...it comes down to convenience."
