Slashdot thread on the long-term instability of CD-Rs

I found this thread fascinating for a number of reasons. First off I hadn’t known there was any such issue of CD-Rs becoming unreadable and unstable over time, so it was just a good cautionary tale. Secondly in explaning the phenomenom, the posters give a great lesson on how some of the technologies involved with CD-Rs work. Finally, it’s just another great example of slashdot as an informal learning community. – SWL
