Just wondered what was meant by:

"The tape drive tracks usage to decide when it needs cleaning. When the tape drive wants to be cleaned, it really wants to be cleaned: be sure you have a cleaning tape in the shop"

Is this the cleaning light coming on?

At first. Ignore it, and it will stop writing tapes after a while. Then you have to beg the money people to order cleaning tapes, fast.
