ABSTRACT
The article discusses Digital Audio Tape (DAT) technology. DAT machines are still a repairable item in 2004. The shift from absolute to timecode (TC) repairs reveals a trend among two groups: those who can afford to "wade out" a new technology wave and those who must jump in and ride the wave to shore. Either way, people are keeping their TC portables in shape for both primary and backup duty. We're slowly reaching the end of DAT's lifecycle; in a few years, the technology will be passed from the recording domain to that of archivists.
