I have trust issues with all storage, but flash memory-based storage is particularly unreliable.
TL;DR - Stubby metal drives are a problem.

There are a lot of people who have been key, at least in hindsight, to my development.
I haven't really thought about populating this topic, but at a glance..
Split off from Migrating WordPress
Short answer: There might be ways to import something large, but it's far easier to reduce the size of your database.
Migrating WordPress from one web hosting company to another.
The goal is to have a blog installation which is active and working, and will never be disabled and cannot be damaged in any way, and to copy it to a new place. For my tests, I used an entirely new host using a new "practice" domain name.
- You own a PlayStation 2
You own official PlayStation 2 discs
- PlayStation 1 discs will also be researched.
The use cases are much the same as with DVD ripping:
- Back discs up before disc rot sets in.
Rip discs and keep them safe
- e.g. parents with little kids who damage discs.
Playing on a PlayStation 2 which has a broken DVD drive.
Cornerstone websites are gone.
I didn't look too far into things, but there are definitely very large changes since I was "into" Ruby, back in mid-2006.
An extraordinary tactician and samurai (Japanese swordsman) had a late-life crisis and retired into monkhood. Over time, he allowed a scribe to record advice from his experience. Though meant to be extremely-selectively passed-on, it ultimately found itself in the hands of enough people to survive to today. It is a book on the martial use of the sword, the way of swords, the way of personal and mass martial strategy, and the Way.
I haven't read broadly and deeply enough, and I doubt anyone has, to truly judge this work in the context of what humanity has to offer (what has survived, that is), but I feel comfortable saying this is one of the Great works. I should say I highly recommend it, but I fear most people wouldn't even begin to comprehend it even in any vague sense. This is not a beginner's book, whatever "beginner" means with this book in that context. At the very least, this ought to be read by people who are deeply passionate about philosophy (of the armchair variety).
My edition of this book has an unfortunately-shiny fabric hardcover, with glossy full-colour pages with photographs which give it an impression of high quality. It even has an integrated ribbon bookmark. When reading it at length, I get the impression that the pages will eventually pull out. I hope this is not true.
