Mac OS X MacFUSE 2.0 was recently released onto the world, and now, its author, Amit Singh, as given Mac users something they've been waiting for ever since they first laid eyes on Mac OS X: access to numerous old (and more recent) file systems, through something called AncientFS. Always wanted to mount v1tap DEC tapes as ordinary volumes in Mac OS X? Here's your chance.

This is really cool, because data stored digitally really has a poor track record when it comes to longevity, not because the media is fragile (though that too, sometimes) but because after a couple decades, nobody has machines that can read it. This kind of project could prove to be very useful for historians and archivists in the future.
