I’m thinking that’s another government agency that can kiss my big white ass.
Filed under the heading: I Want Two! (One for backup): New diamond wafers made in Japan can store 1 billion Blu-Ray discs of data. As it says, the company is thinking to commercialize them in 2023; but I imagine they’ll be WAY out of my price range. Would love to have that kind or storage. The only two questions I have are: Write Speed? Read Speed? Fast enough to do video is the main thing.
Problem is: I’m a compulsive collector. Sure, downloading a season of NCIS is ok, but, buying the DVD/Blu-Ray and ripping my own without those onscreen adverts is way better. (Commercial tv sucks with those ads for what’s next taking up a third of the screen even momentarily. And those station id logos are even worse.)
And, right now, Blu-ray is the way to go. Sure, I use Handbrake to “shrink” the final movie file; but mostly for space considerations. Hard drive space is limited. Even with the 4 5-tb drives in my NAS. Imagine not having to worry about how much space a file takes. 30 Gig vs 2 Gig.
As it is though, I could start watching everything I’ve “collected” so far and still not get through it all before I take that final step across the Multiverse. So giving me more space is probably a bad thing.
Speaking of collecting: Got the rescanned HD “War of the Worlds” 1953. Still a classic that looks a LOT better now. Anyone else notice that “Doctor Clayton Forrester” really needed “to get a better look at them,” DID get his chance, and threw a board at it? And poor Ann wakes in a strange man’s arm in a field but opens her eyes like she just got laid. Again.
Shoot. Keep forgetting to post this. Got busy packing for our trip to Ohio. Had to let the bank know we’re traveling so our cards won’t get locked out in bumfuck, Wyoming. Mail. Things.
Our future daughter-in-law and her dog are going to house sit for us. Nice of her. She likes it out here in the “boonies” though, so, that’s good. We’ve showed her how to work the smart tv, the raspberry pi with KODI on it to watch the stuff on the NAS. Got her tablet and phone added to our network so she can use our Internet and not her cell time.
So, 0900 tomorrow …
And I am watching the Wx out on the Plains really close.
