The original poster isn't preserving information; he is saving it temporarily. This is all about temporary data.

Right now you are just repeating the obvious. You also shifted your argument; you went from you will lose information to you can lose information. Then you introduce both complex documents and hardware into your argument. Nobody disagrees about the transience of hardware standards and physical media, so why preach on it? What does it have to do with a text or csv file I have from 1993?

I have thirty year old source that was on floppy, tape backup, Zip drives, Jazz drives, various hard drives, CDROM, DVD-ROM and is now on an SSD and on OneDrive. It still compiles. Yet, you argued that I was all but guaranteed to lose information in each transfer; that no file format lasts. It has. (Granted, I'm the only one to care about that specific project, so when I die or get tired of keeping it around, it will vanish, but that's also true about almost everything I own--that's life.)

I'm also a bit baffled by the claim that "ASCII was introduced as the final solution for all computers all over the world to interchange arbitrary data". No it wasn't. Your straw man collection is now complete! Or is it? Smile | :)
