I must be a strange kid because I never had an evil monster creature that haunted me.
Instead, I got scared of the movie Poltergeist (which I haven't seen again to this day) and some war movie with Chuck Norris.

I remember thinking that I was more scared by "The Day After" (miniseries about a nuclear war and its after-effects) than I would be if I had seen it. Later, reading up on it, I realized no, my parents probably were smart to not let me see it...

If you do decide to archive some pix to external storage, my only advice is to store them in a format which can be read natively. (i.e. not some proprietary backup or compressed format.)
Hmm... I wonder if there's a tool out there which will archive pix but keep a index of thumbnails so you can easily find the originals.

JPGs don't compress for crap, so it's pretty pointless to try.
My usual back up plan is straight file copy.

DVDs don't last forever, so you might want to burn a couple of copies, and then copy those copies every few years... Just to be on the safe side.

yeah, i was thinking about that
actually CD-ROMs might be a bit more durable.
Or maybe a cheap harddrive

To guarantee that you won't lose the data, just simply print the photos out in binary and put it all in a fire-safe box.
That's what I do.
