    :( I just read an article that says that the Quantegy plant in Opelika, Alabama has closed yesterday in lieu of restructuring after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

    here is the link to the article:

    I'm sure they'll be back. But at what capacity? Only time will tell.

    Hmmm... do you guys know if there is an alternative for the Quantegy 456 (1/2") tapes ? My Tapemachine (Fostex G16) is calibrated for those tapes. :(
