Hundreds of listings for Taiyo Yuden on eBay.  My last purchase
of T.Y. CD-Rs was for a spindle of 100 a couple of years ago,
so I can't recommend a particular seller.  My predilection for
my next purchase is to buy printables; you can write on those
with a pencil.

Some burning tools (K3b, others) report the manufacturer information,
so you can verify what you get when you use the disk, even if it is
rebranded.  The raw, unbranded spindles are probably cheapest,
though, and you are less to end up with a batch that was underwater
on a store shelf in the Sandy Superstorm.

Let us know now this works out.
