Normal film has been used fo decades and work quite well... and has the fantastic advantage of just looking at it and seeing what is on it and how it is ment to be used.

None of the hanky panky übercool digital solutions has a solution for your problem... but the good old Super8 does.

The digtal world has miserably failed the long time archiving problem.

"In general, water-cooled PCs are NOT quiet. There still must be high-volume air flow through the radiator, and in most cases that means: big fans."
You can drop the radiator with fan design and have are quite large ribbed aluminum tank instead, hot water gets in at top and you get room temp water out from the bottom. There has been at least one commercial implementation of this solution with a very nice looking tank.

"The EU is going to be thrilled that Microsoft's phone division is going to be based out of Finland for years to come. Likely this helps EU/Microsoft relations. "

After PRISM ? That would be like saying "YES" to uncle Sam having an official approval to spy thru Nokia manufactured phones and not being able to do anything about it.
They may however use just that against uncle Sam and the merger.

Nobody in Finland (or in EU) is happy about this merger, the money are just a small compensation... but ideally they rather would keep Nokia where it was, without Microsoft... and without Elop, that was quite clear when the chairman spoke.

...Nokia is neither sold nor bought YET! They are missing both approval of the share owners and from the EU, US and probably also from the Finnish government.
For Nokia Android would not be a race to the bottom because Nokia IS already on the bottom... if you do not earn anything then anything that would raise your earnings is a better solution even if it is Android.
This, if proven true, may in fact sabotage the Microsoft - Nokia merger plan...
I surely hope that most of Nokias shareholders will say "Thanks, but no thanks" to Microsoft and get Elop fired.

Today ms. Bramsen is no longer the draftsman on IT and telecommunication, she has advanced to the next level of destruction and is now the draftsman on juridical issues.
The new draftsman on IT and telecommunication is Karin Gaardsted a 58-year old teacher. Version2 asked her about white socks to which she responded that she do not have problem with white socks and she will seek expert advice.
