Bummer! I had thought that there was some kind of chemical change going on,
which is why SSDs supposedly have a limited number of rewrites. But to know
that they'll break down after a year or two...jeez, I have 5 1/4 inch
floppies that have lasted longer than that.
Whoever invents the "perfect" storage medium (writing on glass?) will have
archivists around the world lined up.
