	Well, I was *trying* to riff on the previous poster's comments 
concerning a drive that could "format anything except a pizza."  That, 
and the legendary Chicago deep-dish.
	So, imagine a drive that *can* format pizza, when someone puts a 
single-layer pie in the unit but selects Chicago formatting....

	I *really* need a sense of humor that depends less on obscure elements.
