IBM Hard Drive Crash

20 Feb

Digging through my old photo library , I came across the following painful photograph.

Specifically  the pain related not to loosing the disk-drive or data (it was a scrap drive) ,but rather to the fact that the platters exploded on my workbench, throwing micro-fragments of glass into my right hand.(I was trying to disassemble the platter stack)

So for all the idiots abusing diskdrives by taking the tops off and throwing things in and then posting the results on NOOBTUBE® let this be a warning; that even when the platters are NOT spinning these things can be lethal.

Implantable data storage

Still I am now lucky enough to be carrying parts of the drive platter in the fingers of my right hand.
