I honestly have to wonder how my own collection compares to Ian.... I go for diversity more then quantity so I've only got 1k or maybe 1.5k discs. Counting them is rather problamatic however :cry:

Yes, my stash probably isn't as diverse as yours. I've just got a lot.

How much freaking media is in that 47 lb. box? That's freaking massive! Granted, I have outdone 47 lbs. for a single box of media...

Since then I've added another shelf with 8 more cubes. Those are now full too and I've started to pile the spindles on the floor.
