Splinters takes over the ANU Supercomputer!

Still pinching myself after a visit to the ANU Supercomputer facility where they have kindly agreed to upload the Splinters video preservation files – which are very very large, some over 60Gb – from the data tape on which they are stored. This is a step on the way to archival data storage on the ANU Data Commons. Many thanks to the ANU’s Robert Davy and Doug Moncur.

The first photo is the tape loading robot. Brought back memories of Khail Jureidini’s Long Time Earth View Gone at the Australian Academy of Science Shine Dome (1996).
