In-reply-to » Fire-proof safes are generally designed so the internal temperature stays at or below ~350°F. Is there a computer medium I can write that's likely to survive an extended stay around that temperature? Storage size doesn't matter too much; a CD would be plenty (although an actual CD would presumably turn to soup).

There are apparently dedicated “fireproof” external hard drives available that do this, and this coincidentally-timed piece suggests I might be able to get closer to what I was thinking in the not-too-distant future: https://www.pcgamer.com/hardware/ssds/researchers-have-developed-a-type-of-flash-memory-storage-that-can-withstand-temperatures-higher-than-the-surface-of-venus/

Storage size doesn’t matter too much; a CD would be plenty (although an actual CD would presumably turn to soup).

I run Plan 9 on my server and my main home workstation (a raspberry pi). My “daily driver” time is basically split between that and a Mac (excluding time on my phone, i suppose). I think it looks elegant, too. :-)

In-reply-to » This was interesting: I didn't expect so much variation in reported times. If you happen to have #plan9 running on some other VPS, I'd love to hear your results. https://pdx.social/@a/112481970480703254

There’s other potential uses for the tool (compare syscall latency between OSes, stat latency between file systems), but not what i’m after.

For my purposes, the comparison would only be useful to systems running Plan 9; if you happen to have that, yes please!
