- excellent thoughts. I'll share with our superior. As for time, we have a Sister who can do this ... put a tape on to record, walk away and come back 1.5 hours later to check on it. She can do the most important ones first. We'd get an external HDD - a Terabyte is reasonable now. I"ll check on the CPU. If we need to corral a benefactor for a new library computer, we will. These VHS tapes are going to be good for nothing in a year or two - parishes just aren't holding onto players. this has to get started.
