Re: [BKARTS] printing for eternity



How about engraving metal? If you know someone who is a jeweler, they
generally have tools that can easily and efficiently engrave letters in gold
or another metal.

Thinking about it a bit more, I realized that there already is a writing
system that should be about as permanent as possible. Laser etched
diamonds.  If a
diamond truely lasts forever, then a diamond with laser etched writing on
it
would truely be printing for eternity.  The only way to destroy the writing
would be to destroy the diamond.  It's off-the-shelf technology, too.
