My opinion is that printing out all data acquired in a laboratory
notebook computer is a foolish waste of time, trees, money, and space.
Performing frequent backups with religious fervor makes much more
sense to me (with the understanding that magnetic media have limited
lifetimes).  Please explain why magnetic backups are not sufficient.
