Getting it from this prototype into something using off-the-shelf CD
printing printers is a little challenge but doable. I would have done it
but lacked the printer :-)
As for the huge storage, it currently holds 30 disks. And also it's now
collecting dust as my CD collection is digitized and harddisk space is
so cheap that the need to write DVDs ist quite low.

So time has killed the project.
