Then my idea about laser etching at different layers inside the diamond, thus
being able to store incrediable amounts of data inside a single diamond,
might not be what this guy wants.    However, it really doesn't matter. If you are
looking for the absolute longest lasting writing, then the answer is laser
etching on something that will last a long time.  How long the substance lasts
is a matter of material engineering.

I think the idea of the clay tablets is actually pretty good.  However, it
might be better to use something like porcelain.  The right types of porcelain
are nearly industructable.  And, the laser etching will show up just fine.
Plus, with a little bit of the book arts, it could look good, too.
