  1. There was a huge burst of interest in this when it was first reported in Mar-May of this year, and /nothing/ since… despite it being something that LOOKS like it could easily be duplicated by others. Has anyone tried grinding up some carbon in water, coating a dvd, running it though a drive and then sandwiching a pair of those to make a super cap?
