How long is my data?

This started after Stuart Lewis posted a picture of his latest hardware on Twitter:

Ever wondered what a petabye of storage looks like these days? This...! These have just been delivered and are destined to be installed next week in the @natlibscot preservation storage system (96 x 14TB 7.2K SATA drives --> geo replicated @scality system) https://twitter.com/stuartlewis/status/1255825450485628928/photo/1

I worked out what that would look like if you filled the National Library of Scotland with floppy disks, and he replied with an idea about shelving.

I took that idea to create a silly app, which you can see on Glitch at https://howlongismydata.glitch.me.
