    I was at a computer fest in the early 90’s when these disks were still in mainstream use and cost $1-2 each, and they had trees decorated with them. Back then, they had a bit of a problem with ornaments disappearing though.

      …..and now you should be able to get them by the truck load for free! A company I worked for a long time ago had hundreds sitting in a cabinet collecting dust.
