/me giggles madly

Just what planet are we talking about?  Parents knowing more about
computers than their kids? Ha! parents have no idea what the
capacity of a CD is, unless your unit of measure is "12 Temptations or 8
AC/DC songs" (of course, CDs from the store are never full).  It's the
kids, the ones burning mix CDs all the time, that are most likely to
know that, and even then, the answer is more likely "19 or 20 songs,"
not some mega-giga-things.
