Preserve Your Memories

If you are at all like most folks I’ve talked with recently, you probably have a closet or box filled with old 8mm movies or VHS tapes. Some of you have a similar box of audio tapes and a perhaps a batch of slides and a stash of long play records. You haven’t viewed or listened to your valuable collection in years and the equipment which played them is long gone or no longer operable.

Perhaps it’s time to preserve these old and valuable memories to a more modern format so you can again enjoy them. You won’t find a more reasonable way of doing this — give me an opportunity to make these accessible.
