Gerecke's numbers (five years for a _high-quality_ burnable CD) are
scarier than what we've heard previously.

In the case of digital images, magnetic tape might be the best bet.
However, in the case of tech docs and uncompiled source code, why not
back it up onto good old paper? Worse comes to worst, you can scan it
back into digital.
