A friend of mine and his co-workers used to actually race several
HDs accross a desk like this. I remember once seeing a virus hoax which
described how the virus would not only perminently erase everythig on your
HD but would actually begin to eat away at the physical components within
the system. Leprosy for the PC, yup low level format and shake the drive,
gotta love those HD disk trenches, make great tunes.
