A Terabyte of Data on a Regular DVD? 200

Roland Piquepaille writes "This is the promise of the 3-D Optical Data Storage system developed at the University of Central Florida (UCF). This technology allows to record and store at least 1,000 GB of data on multiple layers of a single disc. The system uses lasers to compact large amounts of information onto a DVD and the process involves shooting two different wavelengths of light onto the recording surface. By using several layers, this technique will increase the storage capacity of a standard DVD to more than a terabyte. Read more for additional references and a diagram showing how this two-photon 3D optical system reads data."

Journal: Yet Another Slashdot Bug? 6

Journal by Dthoma

I just noticed when posting a comment that I appear to be getting a 'Friend of a Friend' modifier applied to my own comments. This has only started happening since yesterday when I set a +1 bonus to all Friends of Friends. Apparently Slashdot has realised that one of my friends has marked me as their friend, so it's giving me the +1 bonus by mistake.

You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
