Against everything but time, Bill. I would copy it to fresh media about 
every 2 years.  I reached for a 4yo disk because I knew it had something 
on it I wanted to use with a newer install, and k3b couldn't find a disk 
in the drive. Another disk a bit newer, read just fine.  And I got 
lucky, a copy of that script I wrote ages ago was on it.  Else I would 
have had to reinvent that wheel all over again.
