Burned CDs

I'm distressed to learn that burned CDs have a life span of only 2 to 5 years! I had planned on storing most of my photos on CDs to avoid having to print them. Plus, I have such a hard time deleting photos, even when I have five almost identical shots of baby smiling. There's plenty of space on a CD, so I can just save them all! Printing them isn't cheap either; those ink cartridges don't last long. So this info makes me sad.

Gosh. I didn't know that. I too thought we had a safe, permanent respository. We keep them on our hard drive, too, but we're clearly going to have to keep reburning them every few years to keep them in good shape.
