Sorry, Mr. Fletcher, but you didn't get the point. If the "archival"
technology changes, say from CD to video laser, you HAVE to change media,
and then you won't have a readable CD to confirm and to be sure that the
data was correct or not. In the process of changing from one medium to the
other, you simply can't come back and compare, you have to believe in the
person who did the job that the data wasn't modified at any time.
