Sure, but it died in a fire a long time before that.
I think calling them crazy or crazy-as-shit is a bit uncalled for. Sure, some of them are, but most are not.
Just misguided, gullible, or naive.
They faded to white a long time ago, so it's hardly coincidental.
NM is a real pain in the ass.
I'm sure you've seen it mentioned elsewhere, but just in case: TSA != US Customs.
A fate they quite arguably deserve.
He should do it because it's the right thing to do, there should not be any need for more incentive than that.
Why are hoodies useless? I'm going to assume it never goes below 65F where you live.
I'd prefer he get busy dying. Hopefully that's what is happening, actually.
It's not really the camera, it's the transmission method. Looks like SSTV.
I don't think you understand what "archive" means.
Personally, I think we're just fine if everything is converted to bits and we remember that there is no guarantee that a set of bits might not be damaged or lost.
Just like books - there's no guarantee those won't fall victim to water damage, or fire, etc. You have to take care of it, and guard against the applicable failure modes. With digital data this is just as possible, but the techniques are as different as the failure modes.
Just because it was sitting around in a library is no guarantee anything would have happened with it.
True, but if the charger was overheating, you would expect the performance characteristics to change.
That video isn't a very good example. He keeps moving the camera around, and it seems whenever it moves back out so you can see the whole rag pile, it appears to have been disturbed while it was not visible.
Quantity is no substitute for quality, but its the only one we've got.
