he's talking about actual 3" cd-r's. they aren't real popular because
they store such a small amount of data. here (for illustration purposes
only, i have no idea if this pricing is even reasonable) is a page that
offers them:

some companies were lopping the top and bottom off and making working
business cards out of them. i picked up a sony a/v disc at comdex that
was business-card sized that actually played in a cd-rom. you can see
some of these at:

as far as i know they aren't that temperature sensative, the deal with
cd-r's is usually about UV because the sun just eats them alive.
