Re: Security against fire..

On Sun, 08 Feb 2009 05:46:28 +0000, Who Me? <whome@xxxxxxxxxx>

I want to protect some SD Flash cards (total size 1" x 1.5" x 0.5")
against structure fires. All the fire safes I can find are for much
larger items

Anyone have a better idea?

Sure. Encrypt the data and put it online. Or anywhere else.

Protecting against real fire can be a problem.
Even proper (and expensive) datasafes protect your data only for
up to 120 minutes.
Actually: they all rely on the fire being put out within say 60
minutes. And that includes the time it takes to
- detect the fire,
- alarm the fire services,
- fireservices to arrive and
- the fire to be controlled.

Kind regards,
Gerard Bok
