Hmm. You might be right, but considering that HD DVD has some
powerful supporters, don't knock it out yet. I also am not sure
optical disks would make good backup media only because writing to
them would be a heck of a lot slower than mechanical disk drives
or solid state devices.


I too assumed that the recent announcement that Warner had chosen
BluRay might mean the end of HD-DVD, but an article today says that
consumers have bought about 60% more HD-DVD machines than BluRay
(something like 500,000+ to 300,000+). One of the reasons for
those numbers may be that WalMart sells HD-DVD machines exclusively.


"For my part, my images are not worth backing up."

Who do you suppose said that? Or should have?

OT: Wasn't that long ago I saw a possum trotting. By the time I got
my camera, he was in a tree, hissing like a pointy-face cat.

My little companion animal, ET the Xoloitzquintli, did hold a skunk at
bay long enough that I could whip out my CP995:

I think I've been through there. It's near Pigeon Forge, isn't it?
Seems like there was a good restaurant on the town square.

Fry's in the US just had a special: Seagate 500GB PATA for 99$ US.
At the current exchange rate that's just 67 Euro.

BTW: I'm pretty sure you didn't mean gramm bit (that would be gb) but giga
byte (that's GB) ;-))

Warner chose to support only the higher capacity Blue Ray format (50GB
per disk for Blue Ray vs. 30GB per disk for HD DVD).

This could mean the death of the lower capacity HD DVD format and lower
costs for Blue Ray disks due to their mass use (economies of scale).

Good news for all photographers who have to backup Gigabytes and
Gigabytes of images :-)


That is good news indeed. Hopefully those disks will last longer than
average CDs.

Frank, As a former denizen of Kansas City, Mo. I chose the moniker Possum
Trot to celebrate its history. The original settlers also considered
Rabbitville and Port Fonda, eventually chosing the name based on the Kansa
tribe which lived in the area..

Very interesting. Thank you.

It's going to get dark in KC come October: the Black Mustang Club will
be holding its national five-day meeting there. blackmustangclub.com.
