I just posted the article New DVDs claim 1,000-year life span.

While most DVDs can be relied on for as little as two years, a start-up company called Cranberry says its DVDs last an entire millennium.

Why not say 10,000 years or 1,000,000? Don’t be modest when you’re talking BS. Thanks for making me laugh out loud.

Wow - the National Archives Web page doesn’t even get the CD-R and DVD-R acronyms right, so are we expected to take the rest of their page seriously?

CD-R or CD-ROM stands for CD-Readable or CD-Read Only Memory; DVD-R stands for DVD-Readable.

I’d really be ticked off if my expensive disk failed after only a few hundred years. I might have to write them a nasty note…oh, wait! :doh:

The discs are readable in any DVD player.
