Hi, Peter,

You might want to look through the AMIA-List archives,
Search page:  http://lsv.uky.edu/scripts/wa.exe?S1=amia-l

as this subject has been popping up there over more than three years  
that I've been reading that list.

One Subject to look for is "[AMIA-L] Recrunching the numbers on  
storage costs" which Jim Lindner did on June 24, 2008.

The topic came up Dec. 23-26 on the list under "LTO" in a thread  
started by Martha Singer.  Jim Lindner and several other people piped  

And it's come up most recently on Feb. 6-13 under the subject "Re:  
[AMIA-L] Archiving Video"

Hope this is helpful to you and other TIG'ers.
