Will CD's survive and EMP?

I know nothing that will play them will survive it but I figured I would ask.

    Skynet is on the cusp of world domination.
    All other web based systems will be rendered useless. It knows what's best for us in the future. It now has a higher consciousness above its creator. The be all and end all. The Alpha and the Omega dictating what is pure in all stored media.
    Hard copies will be a currency in the days before the rebellion. Encase your CDP in lead lining.

  • The is one time coiling cables is useful. Set your CDs in the center before it is too late!

    It (Skynet, that is) will be really puzzled by rekkids, though.

    Since 'real' CDs have pits burned in the aluminum layer, they should just laugh politely at an EMP.

    So will our vacuum tubes.

    Y'all in the soiled state domain -- oh, well, you'll just have to stand outside & watch the fireball.

    I'm not thinking tubes will work Doc. Wouldn't the infrastructure be a little toasty?
  • mhardy6647mhardy6647 Posts: 26,522
    well -- a minor technicality.
    The tubes'll be fine.
    Heck, the H-bombs' got tubes in 'em.
    Yes, they do.
    Well, kinda.

    Needless to say, I completely believe and trust any information shared on the nuclear arsenal -- by the folks who're responsible for it ;)
