Remember those big whirling tape drives that used to mean "computer" in the movies?

Well, if you happen to still own one, you have less than a week left to order tape for it:

eMag, the last manufacturer of open reel (9-track) tape, is announcing its end of life program for users of this product. eMag, which has produced open reel (9-track) tape in its Graham, Texas facility for over 30 years, has determined that the significantly decreased demand for this once dominant magnetic media format mandates an organized end of life announcement and program.

In order to properly prepare for our final build of this product, eMag will review and accept final orders for open reel (9-track) tape now, and through January 14, 2002.
