Well, any data I'd consider storing on such a strange,
you-probably-won't-see-another, device would have to be worth very little,
or, more likely, backed up onto CD, DAT, or 8MM. :)

That, and where do you suggest one should get "digital cassette" these days?

Well, again, cassettes have gotten better. Depending on the age of this
"digital cassette" technology, it might substitute in a pinch.

Speaking of which, anyone remember anything about the VHS tape backup
devices? Capacity, systems they'd work with, etc? A friend and I were
discussing these a few days ago.
