Hi,
I just saw on the main stats page that a CD-ROM drive has
been purchased for the storage of logs. While it is no money out of
my pocket, I really have to question this purchase. Would not a 4mm
DAT drive be more reasonable? It has greater storage and is
relatively reliable for a much lower $/mb ratio. I know it is not as
"permanent" as a CD-ROM but, in 10 years, people are going to look
back upon things such as the DES Challenge with wistfull humor (just
think of things such as the 386sx at 20mhz!!! (1987ish))
