I don't know of ANY storage medium that doesn't have a finite life span. I mean
think about, it Physical disk mechs fail, magnetic media loses it's ability to
be magnetic, Solid States give out over time (lose ability to retain data), as
do smaller SD cards and what have you.

I mean lets go into any compoent... CPUs fail, RAM fails, serial controllers
fail, etc.

I think the beauty of all this open source stuff is you can run programs on
just about any type of hardware that's capable... I think a rPi could easily
"run forever", and if it doesn't there'll be something else you
can slap your
data onto and there ya go... a good disaster recovery plan is what you should
consider, but honestly it's a BBS...


... It works better if you plug it in.
