In the computer world, many people worry about "bit rot" (data erosion) when it comes to archiving old data. And that's a good thing. But there's an even more serious threat to data life than bit rot... it is format change. Somewhere upstairs I have a low-density floppy disk of a paper I wrote on an Atari 1040ST using WordPerfect. The data is intact... but I defy anyone to read it!!

Well, the more pictures you shoot the more time it takes to weed out the good ones, and after awhile you find you're spending way too much time in front of your computer.
