I Hate Tape Drives

Recently a tape drive broke down.  I realized one thing: I hate tape drives.  I’m not saying this to be funny, I officially hate tape drives.  They are harder than hell to get working.  It it hard to find drivers for, especially for Windows NT 4.0.  We go through these things like crazy.  The darn things keep breaking down because there are so many moving parts.

I am looking forward to the day that computer hardware does not have any moving parts.  This means that they will last longer and will not have to be replaced as often.  But until then, we have to suffer through … tapes drives.
