Sorry if this is a repeat; I just noticed it on slashdot, it's
been out since late October. A quick search through my folder of
classiccmp messages came up empty, so...

NIST has issued a report titled "Care and Handling Guide for the
Preservation of CDs and DVDs" from it's Digital Preservation
Program. The one page summary covers what you already knew about
proper handling and storage. Note that they recommend gold-based
reflective layer discs for archival storage.

Share and Enjoy,
