        This pretty much typifies the sign of the times. Cost is the
predominant factor.
        As a temporary storage facility the electronic medium is fantastic but
it is far from permanent. Think of all the data that will be lost over

that have been mentioned. Those bulletins from over 100 years ago are
still around and are useful references as they are. One of the first
electronic data storage devices, data cards, present a difficulty to
retrieve and we are only talking 50 years or so at most.
