Shooting Hard Drives

While I’m occupied, I’ll leave you with my video where I take out my technological frustrations on a bunch of hard drives.


Bitter got a picture of the undearly departed.

The IBM hard drives have glass plates instead of aluminum, so it was like breaking several mirrors.   I figure I have at least a century of bad luck coming to me now.  Most hard drives these days are using glass platters, I think, because glass has a lower coefficient of expansion than most metals, so the magnetic tracks on the platter surface don’t move as greatly with the expanding platter.
