Sadly this isn't terribly permanent; if it gets left lying around in  
the open it will erode, if left in a secret cave it will eventually  
subduct and get mixed back into the mantle, if put into deep orbit it  
will still slowly erode from cosmic ray ablation and even if stored  
inside the event  horizon of a large black hole it will eventually  
fall prey to the end of the universe as protons decay etc.

On the other hand there is the old saying about 'spinning bits never  
die' so just label your file something like 'Br1tn3yN00d.pic' and  
toss it into the net and it will probably be available in around  
10^42 places in a dozen universes from now.
