I use "disc" when it's a round thingy, a disc. :) I use "disk" when it's something else, like a harddisk or floppy disk.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
