I’m trying to extract old backup tapes before they become unreadable.
I am absolutely stunned to realize that, ten years ago, I found this noise tolerable. What an amazingly annoying piece of hardware!
It is perhaps worth noticing that my Amiga-branded Archive Viper SCSI tape is fine, but my Sun tape drives from the same period don’t look so healthy.
I wonder whether anyone ended up with rights to Commodore’s Amiga Unix.
