Re: More dinosaurs

I keep hearing that about tape, too; Except that I just got a quote from our vendor for a 20 pack of LTO5 tapes that was under a thousand bucks, and if I'm willing to wait for our decrepit library to fill all twenty tapes (~4-5 days under optimal circumstances) that gives me between 30 and 60 TB of storage that can survive a fall off my desk. AND it's cheaper than the equivalent amount in flash, too.

Troll icon for obvious reasons. :D
