Hmm ... that's good to know.  I haven't yet seen one of the business
cards, but perhaps we shall therefore need a fall-back option.  We
could either send the ssd via download/email or replace with a full
size CD option.  I'll pass that on to the production dept to think
about, thanks!

It'll almost certainly come with a Windows emulator, tho whether Mac
emulators are as easy to distribute, I'm not sure, not owning one.
We'll also certainly try to do something to make more use of the
available space, tho I doubt we'll come anywhere close to filling it
...
