Tangential to this, I've long wondered about some things relating to
SSDs.  Are there any solid figures on their retention period after years
of being unpowered?

The reason I ask is that I've long been in the habit of simply shelving
an old hard drive when I upgrade or replace a system.  I've got hard
drives that still work that hail back to the days of OS/2 1.1; some
larger ones go back to the 1970s.
