Now the question is where can I buy a CD storage container that maintains 40% humidity and 18°C?

seriously... anyone know?  The only solution I could think of is buying a small wine fridge, a hygrometer, and some other assorted DIY humidor accessories and just building one.

I don't know about the temp part of that but what about a humidor.

Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

Many thanks for the link...
You can maintain a stable humidity in any enclosed room (a walk-in closet works great for such purposes) - I do that to keep fragile acoustic instruments from cracking...
