Didn't Dyson solve this problem by simply runing slower and slower over
time?  I can look the paper up if someone wants.  This is hard for
biological entities (though you could consider cryonics to be a form of
this) -- but once ones mind is uploaded running at slower and slower clock
rates isn't a big deal.

The real problem is going to be whether or not protons decay.  If they do
one can probably only exist as some kind of photonic cloud.

The long term prospects are discussed in The Five Ages of the Universe --
though they don't get into how one preserves "minds" as thing start to decay
towards the "dead" universe.
