    hey, did you get any cool new toys for Christmas? Tell us about it. I got these crazy CD wall-shelfs, from IKEA. At last count, I had over 700 CDs (might be over 800 by now) and they're everywhere around the house, so it's a problem that's needed addressing for awhile. The shelves are plastic, come in 15" x 15" squares, and look kinda like louvered blinds; fairly flat with shallow grooves for holding the jewel cases by one edge. Each square holds 50 discs, and they stick out horizontally, at a slight angle. Hard to describe without seeing, but it is *so* cool. Wicked easy to install, wicked easy to get the CDs in and out, and on your wall it looks like this huge 3-D mosaic. Form *and* function. So, what'd you get??? /rick
