I could spare one of my 250 MB Zip disks for that purpose. I don't know how long a Zip disk lasts, but I'm sure by the time it becomes important there'll be some other storage format I can transfer everything to. Unfortunately, my 56K modem gets 28.8 at best and ordinarily 26.4! So I rarely download more than 10 MB of anything in one day (and please don't send me large amounts of data in email without checking first!)
