It's been a while since I've posted here - a few years ago, there was an announcement of a recordable DVD with a stone-like data layer that could store data for in excess of 1000 years.
Just the other day, I realized my local computer shop (finally) had them - and I gave them a thorough run at my blog site. I was so convinced that it would probably be another case of vapourware, but it turns out it wasn't!
I also wondered what might happen if you use these discs contrary to their instructions - i.e. with LG M-Disc ready burners only. The results are here.
Please be patient, and gentle. My blog is served from a home ADSL2+ connection (1Mbit/s upload) with a Raspberry Pi board (700Mhz ARM single core with data on SD card), so it might take a while to load.
I'd be glad to hear from other M-disc users and the general community about their thoughts. Personally, my tests leave me with mixed feelings - at present, I have only two 10-disc spindles and haven't owned them long enough to know about the longevity, but burn quality and readback are not to the same level I've been used to (from MCC and TY's).
