Gold CDs


After calming down from the excitement of receiving my adapter step-up ring for my D60 I decided to take a look at the Adorama catalog that came with the package. I ran across something kind of interesting in it (at least interesting to me), gold CD-Rs and DVD-Rs. Apparently they write very slow, but have a scratch-resistant and oxidation-resistant coating to allow the CDs to last 300 years and the DVDs to last 100 years. I am seriously considering obtaining some (in the more modest 10 pack, not the $200 spindle) as a way to back up my academic work as well as other projects I have worked on, including GITI.
