It is said dvd's have a shelf life between 5 and 10 yrs.

micro sd cards have a life in excess of 10 yrs .

I would think dvd's are more likely to get damaged than sd cards
and if they have a shelf life of 10 yrs will they still have rom drives that will play them in 10 yrs time. will dvd rom go the same way as floppy drives.

Yeh thought of that, but I could swallow half a dozen micro sd's before she who should be obeyed would notice.
And i'm guessing they would be a lot easier to pass.

Hi MSR, interesting subject

In a past career i got a couple of organisations (large and very very small) through BS7799 Part 2 so although as you will of course know its moved on to ISO27000 series I still keep my hand in, especially in other management system standards so if you ever need anything related give me a shout (hope that doesnt sound too patronising, its a genuine offer :D )
 
MSR what do you think of some of the things brought up in 2600 magazine if you have ever read it.
 
Massive USB stick would obviously be the correct choice here and if it was found you could always claim it was a lost one you found in the street.
