Ever used VFEmail? No? Well, chances are you never will now: Hackers wipe servers, backups in 'catastrophic' attack
Good points about tape but you missed the important one: Test your backups. Having a tape is no good if you can't restore it after your system has been hacked/burnt/stolen/confiscated/mislaid. Also no good if the tapes are worn out because you cycle around the same five daily backup tapes for 5 years.
Re: The question to ask is whether self-driving trucks will ever be a thing.
Good luck trying to leave the motorway when the slow lane has a twenty long convoy of trucks in close formation and you're in the middle lane.
Similar ting happened on the German autobahn when they had a no-overtaking rule for trucks, the trucks all ended up in a big line behind a slow one and people died when they tried to cut in to exit and got it wrong.

The reason is that you don't have the same combination of stuff in your computers. A windows install includes drivers for your hardware as well as all the different flavours of windows OS and windows features. The fact that you don't see problems and others do is probably down to luck.
Sorry friends, I'm afraid I just can't quite afford the Bitcoin to stop that vid from leaking everywhere
Dark mode themeing is always broken
Given that anything in HTML can specify the background colours and the viewer either respects them or throw away any colour information (e.g. keyword highlighting)
A good solution to blinding white screens is NegativeScreen from https://github.com/mlaily/NegativeScreen for Windows newer than XP. It even works with ClearType fonts. OK it's no good for photos but normal mode is just a win-alt-V away.
