2 Tapes

Two tapes? Yes, two tapes. To be accurate: 2 QIC-150 tapes! But from the beginning ...

This story happened before the 1st Revival of Nemesis (see History). First there was only one tape. The QIC-150 tape where Snake backuped the the whole World of Nemesis, when it was stopped at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 1994 (again: see History).

First there was the problem how Snake could read the now old QIC-150 tape. This technology was not very state of the art.

See why it took him a while to wire that ;-)

The tapedrive - builtin to an external SCSI case:

Ok, now Snake was able to read the old cartridge. For years Snake thought this is THE tape ...

... 'til he managed to have a view at the contents. But what he found was XFree86 1.x.something :-(

After a half hour search he found this tape:

Two tapes - both labeled "Nemesis"! Here the two tapes - the false one and the right one:

Err, which one was the right one?
