Out of the Blue

Well, I certainly would not have joked about those chads yesterday if I imagined that we'd have a repeat of the last U.S. Presidential election, where the uncertainly over the outcome lingers like a hangover the morning after. Sick of the phrase "Provisional Ballots in Ohio" yet? I'm guessing soon enough we all will be. I guess in this clearly overly litigious society, it's only appropriate that our elections get decided in the courts. To my thinking, the oddest Election Day story comes from New Mexico, where they got tired of counting votes, and went home for the night. Thanks for playing guys. Oh yeah, and a note to all politicians... no matter how exuberant the moment... you really should avoid dancing when Kool & the Gang comes over the P.A. singing Celebrate (seek video of our reelected N.Y. Senator Schumer for a good example).

Play Time: EssayGenerator.com. Thanks Dave.
Links of the Day: Your Mud. Thanks Tony.

Enahs, (How the hell do you pronounce that?)

It will be very difficult to replace the motor in a hard drive. Basiclly, the column that the platters suspended on *is* the motor. You'd have to open the HD, somehow slide the arms with the r/w heads off the platters (most likely 2-4 heads or 1-2 platters) without scratching anything, take off the platter(s), place them in the new HD and then move the r/w heads back on to the platter without bending the arms too much. Ideally without getting dust or a fingerprint on anything.

I suspect it can be done, but it will be very difficult even with the correct tools for all the special screws. In your favor tho' is the fact that you only need to get the data off and then to hell with the drive.

Have you ever taken apart a hard drive before? I have a dead one at home I can open up and take pictures of for you. At least to give yourself an idea of what you're getting into.
