Fourteen miles of empty shelves

INTERDUBS crossed the 1.5 Million file mark yesterday. Big numbers are hard to imagine. Simplifying matters a bit one can assume that each file at least replaces one DVD. If one would put those 1.5 million DVDs side by side on a shelf then it would be 14 miles long. It was a while back that I walked that distance. But I still remember vividly that it took a while.

Not using those DVDs saved 500 metric tons of CO2 as well.
