One of the problems with our modern age is that the storage devices and media we use do not hold up very well. And even when the media does, the software to ever retrieve it tends to disappear. I have things written in WordStar for instance that I am sure must be absolutely brilliant because I found the 5.25 inch floppies tucked away in a box when I moved. I must have had a reason for saving them. Even if I could find a drive to try the discs, where in the world would I find anything to read old Wordstar files?
Anyhow, these folks, for $40 or so, are at least proposing a solution to media degradation by offering to etch data to stone/diamond. You can then read the discs in a standard drive. I pass it on just because the concept is intriguing.
I remember Wordstar...I still have some 5.25" discs somwhere in the basement
I still have some old resumes stored in different versions of software that are no longer made
Dunno why I just don't delete them.....
