Old Media

Apart from old consoles I have only one computer with a CD/DVD drive. There are a couple of radio/CD players around the house but they’re never used.

I have a large wallet of “backup DVDs” in the attic that I made more than 10 years ago. The files on them are my photos that are on multiple drives and in cloud storage too. Probably a good thing as the discs are likely unreadable by now.

I also have one machine that reads 5.25″ discs from the early 1990s so you might realise where my priorities lie.

The resurgence of vinyl records may well be fuelled by the realisation that people like to have and hold physical objects.
