Wait a minute, LTO-9 tape-drives might actually be decent in terms of read/write speeds. If so, that means I only need to figure out two things. One is getting a tape-reader, the other is how many times the taps can be read+written to.

If it can be written however much I want without problems, then I actually could get Venith email running with 100MB send/receive for free. If I can, I'll see if I can find a tape-drive which can support 4+ LTO-9 drives at a time, so that way we can have 72TB or 180TB storage right off the bat.

180TB of storage right off the bat means I'll probably never run out. If I did manage to run out, it'll take so long that there will likely be drives that are even stronger, such as future-planned gen-14 drives going upwards to 1440 TB (see the roadmap graph on https://lto.org/lto-9/)

Tape, if I can figure out how to use it for Venith, will be an AMAZING storage medium thats for damn sure. As long as the tape-reader works and the tapes don't die out fast after intense reading+writing, its the best way to do this. $112 for 45TB is far from something anyone should laugh at considering it is legitimate

I'm willing to try and get the money together for a $4,400 LTO-9 tape-reader if it would help out so majorly that it would be worth it. Not only that, but this isn't just Venith which could use it. It could also be used for my own archives, albeit I would only use it after compiling so much that I'd probably not want to go through it for a long time anyways.

I've considered tape-storage for LARGE amounts of my data, though for now due to price I've decided against that. Seriously its several thousand USD to get a tape-drive, though you can fit like over 30TB per tape which is cool.

Also: There's some tapes (which I think are theoretical for now) which can store as high as 580TB per drive from what I can tell. That's probably a lifetime of data for what i do, especially with me compressing everything.

If those nearly 600TB tapes one day become available to us, rather than theoretical still or just too expensive, I'll gladly get one of those for long-term storage of my data. My biggest problem with something like tape storage is the fact that it's probably too slow and you're seemingly not intended to write to it more than like once or twice, but storage-wise they're so good that it seems pretty useful.

I see a tape-drive which can storage 45TB (or 45000GB) which is only $112. That means each GB is less than a penny. However, the tape-drives are over $4.3k USD, so good luck affording that. I'll have to see, they interest me but seem unreasonable to use as of now merely due to the price of a tape-drive even if you have INSANE amounts of data (tapes are small after-all, so its efficient at least).

If speeds are ok and it can be written to however much you would like without it being problematic though, I'll gladly try to get a system like that up. A tape-drive would be a lot to invest it initially, but would help out MAJORLY if I intend to make Venith a larger site for sure. Especially if I made email servers allowing 100MB+ send/receive for free.

Speeds aren't a big problem as long as its not "1 byte per second" but rather just a few megabytes per second. The big problem with an idea like that is how much I can read/write to such a drive. As long as that's good, it'll probably be fine to do whatever though

Ok the first test of the new link-system has been done on https://digitalcheese.xyz/w/s/412024.html || I'm liking this system, so I will continue doing it. I'll make it so when the link is pressed, it'll highlight the text inside so you won't be confused if there are many links.

The names are the following: OG (original link), IA (internet archive), IS (archive.is), MAFF (.maff archives), TOR (tor link), I2P (i2p link), and VNTH (Venith-custom archive of an HTML released work). So the most archives one would have is 7 which would be listed as "X - OG,IA,IS,MAFF,TOR,I2P,VNTH" (X referring to whichever number citation note it is).

All archived links will be within the pwnote section, it'll go link-citations -> end of article. It's not the perfect system still, but I think it'll be the best we have for a while, it's kinda similar to what digdeeper.club does with links by having tons of archives yet very similar to a Wikipedia like-system allowing tons of links to not look weird.

I once again realized that no-school means that I can actually get something done without having to hurry too fast, so if I make haste then I will be able to make MAJOR progress compared to what you guys normally get to see on this website

Going to try to mass-archive far more of my 3DSPaint blogs considering the fact that I've basically got the layout down (I can finish the 2021 blogs easily). I may try to also just mass-update the layouts on the pages which still lack them, so most of the articles+statuses along with videos. Idk, we'll see :3

Also if I figure out Greek eventually then I'll add Greek as a language I'll respond to. Technically I'll respond to any language, but only English+French I can actually know what it means without Google translate, so odds are whatever I'm reading is not the exact meaning so just use English+French if you really need to message me something important.

I still will use cockli over another email service as my main, despite it being annoying to use half the time especially when I have to send emails to normies. At the very least, I'll forever have it as a backup email and I'll just run an email-server with an OpenNIC domain for my frens (OpenNIC so they cant just take the domain away)

The fact I'd have to lose any full-auto unregistered guns with all the cool-attachments in a boating accident in order to own them is literally 1984 and a violation of my 2nd amendment rights

Being able to stay up late and actually get something done is going to be amazing for me tonight, especially considering I've determined that I have over 120WPM by this point of a typing speed so I can really type things fast.
