Regarding a posting about CD-ROM burners I made a while ago, here's a term
I like a lot: coasters. It refers to CDs that do not burn properly and are,
therefore, of no use except perhaps as drink coasters.

Around here we also call them frisbees.

I figure they can also be useful as reflectors in a solar-power unit, although I
have never made one.

See, if you feel so inclined,
