[OT] An early farewell to optical media

Since it seems like such a slow day, I wrote a little piece on optical
media if anyone's interested: http://weblands.blogspot.com/. Anyway, no
big deal, just thought some of you might be interested, esspecially the
graph (which turned out to be much more difficult to create than I
thought it would be).

Cool! I recall going to the first CD-ROM conference, put on
by M$. At the time, 600 MB seemed HUGE.

Technical editing and writing, programming, and web development

Excellent! That's a great write-up of the state of evolving technology
in the area of portable storage media, brief and thoroughly plausible.
Only one problem: the first word in the last paragraph is a typo. That
should be "It" instead of "In", I think.

Not to nitpick, or anything . . . I just want it to be perfect, since
I'll be directing others to it in the near future.

That sentence was a bit off in a couple of ways. But all better now.
Thanks!

Yeah, I was going to send a second email indicating the other two
problems I noticed and forgot to mention, but you beat me to it. Ahh,
the dangers of multitasking.
