Ireland is obviously a very damp place also.
There are five ten years old de-humidifiers here
so no problem with our digital & analogue
equipment but we don't need continous diurnal
ventilation. No way could we let analogue
archive tapes get moist. A reversed inexpensive
dehumidifier venting to the outside air? Maybe
air conditioners are just as cheap in Oz? Have
you tried CDRW guaranteed 50-100 ys? I mostly
chucked little floppies long back. In expensive
Ireland printers which would do justice to the IAS
Dialogue cost <200 Euros. Living in the wet
tropics first consideration would be
dehumidifiers, airconditioners & musicalmoztraps.
