How many CDs can be labelled with one sharpie?

In an experiment aimed at determining qualitatively how much ink is inside a sharpie, the How Much is Inside people spent two days labelling CDRs with a single Sharpie. The answer:

The total was 968 CDs labeled with one Sharpie marker. You can view tiny images of the CDs on the gallery page.

I estimate the total distance marked to be 1,800 feet.

Hmmm. I'm not sure which is scarier, that the How Much bunch took the time to provide us with this critical info, or that you took the time to find it and share it (yes, I know, these things find you.)
