I had mentioned off-list to Rob the other day that perhaps one could  
store data ala "bar code" much like variable density sound tracks of  

And would the CBS Electron Beam Recording system be useful as a data  
writer onto film?

Have no clue as to what the useful data packing densities of either  
might be at the moment, or what they could be with extended R&D.

Just a couple of thoughts.

Now back to revising song called "Rust on Thin Plastic" to the tune  
of "Nights in White Satin."  Spoken part at the end needs work. : )
