Up To 10% of CD-Rs Fail Within a Few Years

badfrog Re:Not sure that hard drives are any better... (317 comments)

Last year, I was able to boot from and read data off of my 20 year old Seagate ST-225 (MFM) hooked to a Tandy CoCo 3.

I was actually quite amazed that it worked. It was fun seeing all the old BBS numbers were still saved in my telecom program.

badfrog (45310) writes "Over the last 10 years, DSL and cable modem has upped its speed (although in some instances only slightly) and dropped its price. However, the price of a T1 has stayed almost exactly the same. If you had asked me 10 years ago, I would have predicted any geek that wanted to would have fiber or their own T1 line to the house by now. What is with this sad state of affairs that a 'business class' 1.544Mbit connection is hundreds of dollars more than a 6Mbit cable connection? Is it a legitimate case that a high upload rate should increase cost so significantly?"
