Would you like for me to burn/beat that tape for you or do would you like to come on-site to do that? I thought you guys were doing snapshot VMs for backups now and that tapes were not a big deal which is why we only ship your tapes off once a week now.

I won't know for several weeks if that tape needs to be "retired" when it comes backup up again in the rotation. I'd probably end up on-site if that happens since I would need to drop off a replacement. Tapes are not any more or less of a big deal than they've ever been. We're just changing the way in which they get taken off-site.

I really, really hope I am working the day you come down to replace that tape. It's been a dream of mine since day 1 for you or Chad to come down to so some work and I can talk at you while you're doing whatever it is you need to do.

If it saves you a trip though you guys can parcel a new tape to us and we can place it in your cabinet and ship the faulty tape back to you. I had to do that for a SAN drive last week and boy was that a lot of fun! I fucking looooooove tapes.
