    If you have any old 5.25" floppies kicking around, their sleeves make excellent soft, padded storage sleeves for CDs. Just cut the folder edge off and take the disk out - it's the same size as a CD.

    I hung about 100 of them on strings all around the edge of my roof one year along with the Christmas lights. A couple of neighbors didn't like them though. Something about sunlight reflecting off of them into the neighbors house across the street.

    Hmm... I wouldn't have the problem with the neighbors, I'm quite a distance from the nearest one, and I'm also down in a little hollow, so reflections probably aren't an issue. :D
