Re: shout out for storage?

Thank you for that clarification. I figured the data would be gone pretty quickly, relatively speaking. I was just wondering how it was done. My guess would be that it went to some fast storage and then sent down to something like TAPE.

TAPE? Well, it is stable and cheap. I suppose it could go on some massive and portable RAID, but if the truck got in an accident delivering it ... opps. Better run that job again. I'm thinking of modeling something like a neutron star merger. Wouldn't that produce results that would take a long time for analysis?

Then again, the answer to everything is 42 so ... that should fit on a flash drive.
