Anyone else here a fan of ? For me it's by far the cheapest way to store just about anything... I can still find new LTO-3 tapes (400-800 GB) on ebay for under 10 EUR and I only payed 50 EUR for this old HP drive :-) I wrote a few scripts to do regular automated backups of our server that are also logged and reported in emails

Being a GitHub user should not be a prerequisite for public participation.
