Thank you - I haven't seen that one yet. Although one has to be in a certain mood to watch Lars von Trier films without throwing oneself into the path of a train afterwards...

And regarding the possible longevity of electronics: One more factor which hasn't been mentioned is diffusion of atoms within semiconductors. Let them lie around for long enough and they will stop working on their own. Heat accelerates the process, so one might want to store them at very low temperatures. But that again will freeze the liquid inside the LCD displays and render brittle all the plastic parts.

The only way to pass on an HP-41C to a civilazation 100 generations from now is to engrave it's construction schematics in gold foil and store that in a place which is not geologically active, e.g. the moon.
