I wonder if an optical disk wouldnt last indefinitely if stored under a vacuum or in an inert gas.

I was helping my local church clear out junk from a back room a while back and stumbled across a pre-windows 3.1 pc with a whole box of 5.25 floppies, man...it brought back memories. When I had time I plugged it in and it still booted up...was even able to fire up an old word processor using a few of the 5.25's.

Too bad all the computers i use dont last that long, although i still use a 10 year old laptop every day. Theres just something about xp that i like more than vista or 7.
