400Gb Optical Storage....on one disc!

Pioneer have developed a 16 layer optical disc which will hold 400Gb on a Blue Ray disc. This is obviously great news for archiving pictures. However as with all things optical, its going to take a while to find out what the longevity of these discs will be.

As a side line, my advice is back everything up on at least two hard drives and then optical media. Also, look into "cloud" services like Amazon S3 (Using Jungle Disk) or Apple's ".Mac" (soon to be relaunched as "Mobile Me" for virtual storage space on remote servers for important files.
