I'm finishing a project using Lightscribe CDs and need a few more..

 

Its possible some geekzoners may have unwanted Lightscribe CDs lying around..

 

I'd be interested in a purchase..I'm in Auckland

 

TIA

I'm pretty sure I have some at the bottom of my 'bits' cupboard. If I can find them, you can have them for the price of postage. Will check tomorrow.

Had to open the cupboard, & found 4 unusedCd's in a 10 Disk container. Let me know if they are of any use. I'm in Hamilton

I'd be grateful to get them, and happy to pay postage :-)

 

Should I ping some money to yr account??; send prepaid envelope??

 

 

 

Interestingly, yesterday I had a 12 page document, I wanted to send to a friend

 

in Wellington. So I burned it onto a CD/RW, and put it into a polythene CD Mailer,

 

put on a $1 stamp and took it down to the NZ Post.

 

The teller there refused to accept it, saying it should be sent as a parcel .

 

I pointed out that its dimensions and weight ( 120*120*4 mm. 60 gm ) were well under

 

the letter specs (130 mm × 235 mm × 6 mm , 500 g) and it did contain a document..

 

She persisted, even when I pointed out it cost NZPost less to send than the paper version

 

and that it was recyclable. So I took it to the dropbox and sent it on its way; but having

 

an argument at a public service desk is not a good way to win customers yes?? / rant done/

Probably why pavement post boxes seem to be disappearing! We used to have 3 or 4 in the village and now there are none.

Very belated thanks to CeeGee for the Lightscribes.

 

which he posted without wanting payment for postage.

 

Unusual in this commercial age - Kudos and good karma :-)

 

Turns out they were DVDs, not CDs but still most helpful
