The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

20 September 2005

Nothing lasts forever

Except maybe some of those "temporary" taxes.

I lost a CD-R this week to actual bit rot, or something: it looked as though the edge of the aluminized layer had been eroded away, and the last audio track was unplayable. (It was a Maxell, if that matters to anyone.) I have backups, of course, but this was something of an annoyance, since it was the traveling copy of one of my music compilations (specifically, this one).

Still, I've ruined more of these in the production stages than I've ever seen victimized by entropy.
