Sorry - I answered before I looked at the link in your message.
These are 80mm 185MB CD-Rs - they hold more than the 50MB "business card" CDs, but they're larger (80mm circle rather than 80mm-by-60mm), so they won't fit in a wallet or pocket as easily.
Re use, the same rules apply: they'll fit in the smaller circle in a CD tray or they'll snap onto a spindle, but they're too small for slot-load drives. I still find I need to be careful setting them in trays, but otherwise no problems.
I use 50MB CDs for booting a plain DSL with no extensions, and I also use 210MB 80mm CDs (same physical size as the 185MB discs) to boot DSL with OpenOffice, FireFox, a few games and about 30 minures of MP3s.
Having the extensions is nice, but I still enjoy the "coolness factor" of booting DSL from the smaller 50MB discs.
