Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of this fine list :-)

- I know not much about the US postal system nor other distributional matters
in your part of the world.
- But let me tell you of a small (one man show, I don't know??) business in my
part of the world, Denmark. See, they'll burn CD/DVDs and
ship them same day. Prices is the cost of burning, shipping and a small
reasonable profit.
- If legal (?) in the US, such a small entrepreneur would solve at least one
of the box problems that I gather you have - from reading this thread.
- and a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY New Year to you all too !
