OK, you sold me. I just bought a new DLT drive off eBAY
Serendipitously, the case matches the Compaq case my CD burner is in.
Now for some DLT III tapes.
PS. The Exabyte 8500 on the Challenge seems to be fine; I just did a backup
and restore without incident. However, I'd have to buy tapes and whatnot
for either the Exabyte or a DLT, and E.Dittman's comment about the value of
dodgy backup media convinced me that the incremental additional cost of DLT
is worth it.
