I'm concerned about long term consumer data storage options.

Hard drives are dying a slow death - manufacturers have been shutting down HDD factories for years now and the trend is continuing. Once they are gone we will have to switch to SSD.

But SSD cannot be trusted to keep data long term - they slowly lose data unless the cells are refreshed every now and then. You can't put one in a drawer and forget about it for 5 to 10 years without risking data loss.

Cloud storage cannot be trusted long term - accounts close, terms change, things happen. It's someone else's computer.

Optical media and consumer tape drives are pretty much dead.

What's left? I guess I should start printing my photos instead.

After a bit more than one year since I finished, I finally posted the pattern and instructions for my backpack.

This was my first big #MYOG project, and I've been using it almost daily as my “handbag”. www.trueelena.org/clothing/pro… #sewing
