[filmscanners] RE: HD failure [was RE: keeping the 16bit scans} OTif you don't mind losing your images



You are absolutely correct; my mistake.  It would be known in those other
quarters as an inverse "bell curve." :-)

No, it isn't. A normal curve of failure would start out with a small
number of failures, gradually increase to a maximum, and then gradually
drag out to infinity (a small number would last for thousands of years,
which is nonsense). What he's talking about is something just the
opposite: many failures at the beginning, low failures for a long time,
then many failures at the end.
