Can You Believe This?
While packing up Christmas decorations, I found and unpacked a box that had remained sealed from a move 18 months ago. In it I found a VHS tape in a hard black plastic case that I had, at one point some years ago, carefully labeled as 'Genealogy' . . . not too specific, but that's a separate issue. Now - imagine my surprise frustration that with all the tech in my home, I no longer have a VHS player. That will be easy to remedy, but it's a stark reminder that as formats change, we need to be mindful of all these things we preserve in various forms.
