Leaving messages for the future.

If you wanted to make some vids and guarantee they are available for the future but only available after a certain time?

So for example, if I wanted to record a message for my daughter but it would only be available when she was 18 - is there any way to do this? A way to pay some cash and guarantee it would still be there and give a notification to a certain email address or something?

There are sites out there - I think - but the ones i saw seemed low budget. Im wondering how they can guarantee it. 20 years is a long time in computing.

Thoughts?

If it was a message that would be delivered while you are still alive then do it yourself, if it's after you're dead leave it with your will at the solicitors.

I can't see how a 'service' could do it economically. What if you move, how do they find the recipient who doesn't know to keep some fututre message company up to date?

Still no actual guarantee. If the host dies for any reason or even if your solicitor fails and undergoes an intervention, the message could be lost.

Record it on a VHS, Bury it and send a delayed email to an address which you get engraved on a bracelet which you give her for a birthday! The suspense would be amazing!

Isn't this just a time capsule?
