  1. Hi all. Thank you for the great discussion. I am a Biologist and typically read the journal where I got this article for more relevant articles within my field. But I thought this optical disk development was too cool not to share. I posted a direct link to the full text article within the original post for more physics/engineering savvy users. Here it is as well: https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/7/9/eabe2209.full
  2. The researchers do state that the written features of the disk have prolonged stability due to "selecting thermodynamically stable graphene oxide and embedding the nanocomposite into a protective matrix." They don't demonstrate how long the stability lasts and during which conditions. @StDragon mentioned humidity being a factor. We need more data to show the limitations (if any) of this stability as well as length of time.
  3. @AbydosOne Yes, I don't pretend to understand how it works but the resultant disk is pretty cool. I wouldn't mind going back to physical game disks. I know they take up real-world space (as in boxes on a shelf). I'd much rather not have to buy more hard drives every other year because of the increasing size of COD games. I mean COD Warzone takes up a max capacity of 170.9 GB and the PS5 has an internal hard drive of 1TB. Also external hard drives can be a pain.
  4. Summary An advancement in optical disk writing significantly increases storage capacity while greatly reducing energy consumption and cost. Quotes My thoughts Any breakthroughs in technology which increase capacity and decrease cost are welcome with open arms. I think this particular development in optical disk writing could have the greatest impact for platform gamers. As game graphics continually improve and game mechanics/dynamics become increasingly complex, the demand for next generation optics with the capacity to store these gigantic game files greatl
  5. I have a multimeter but I'm not sure how to test the power supply. Honestly I didn't even think about it until just now. Any suggestions on where to start?
  6. My computer stopped working. It no longer powers on. I believe the power supply died but I have no way to test this. I don't have an extra power supply. I don't want to just buying and swapping parts out. I can't really afford to do that. Any suggestions you guys have on how to troubleshoot this? I would greatly appreciate it. I'm just North of Pittsburgh, PA. I don't want to spend the money on a local computer repair shop but if that's what I need to do, does anybody have any recommendations for repair shops close to me? What is everybody's opinion on whether or not I fried someth
