I just got a DVD writer. 15GB is four DVDs. Walmart price for four DVD
blanks is under two bucks. It's insane that leeches feel they need to
suck that much data over a wire. The old slogan about the tremendous
bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes should apply. There should
be a way to widely distribute big archives on written digital media.
DVD readers commonly sell on eBay for under $10.
