Yeah.  I've been using external USB terabyte disks, which work OK but
are irritatingly flaky.

I keep thinking that this is what tape is for, but every time I look
at AIT or LTO tapes and jukeboxes, they seem to be about a generation
behind the disks in capacity or so expensive that I can buy ten TB
disks for the cost of a five tape jukebox.
