Default Better late than never

I found this site just a few minutes ago and was reading on the exploding CD. I know it's an old article but wanted to add something...

Not only will a cracked disk explode, but a warped disk as well. I have not only seen this many times but had it happen to me. Fix it utilities is one I bought a couple years ago, the disk would scrape and take two tries to get going. After examining the disk, I noticed it was slightly warped. I threw it in and proceeded to reinstall, lo and behold, BANG! there was my disk shattered in a new DVD drive I bought. Not happy at all. It ended up ok and no one was hurt obviously but this occurred to at least 3 people who had warped disks as well and are tech friends of mine. This will happen with DVD as well.
