Don't Drill Your Hard Drive

because I love collecting the magnets

that are inside the hard drives

the other day I was working somewhere

and I asked the IT guy if he had any

contrives he wanted to throw out well he

gave me a whole bunch and I noticed in

particular these forms had interesting

damage to them

somebody had drilled into the boards I

have one here where they drilled through

the top of the case and so I thought to

myself well I know why they did that in

case somebody gets hold of the drive

they can't use the controller anymore to

access the media of course I could just

install this controller anyway I was

curious if some of these efforts were

paying off in rendering these drives

useless so I'm gonna pop this one open

in particular because he drilled into

that case to see if the disk is damaged
