"Not an uncommon story", you mean.

Unless you saw it yourself, and can give me the make & model of the drive in question. But you heard the story from someone else, who heard it from ... It's "a friend of a friend", all the way down, with no details. I was one of the guys who used to go out and trouble-shoot these stories (for DEC in my case). It always turned out that somebody got pissed off, ripped the drive out, and threw it at the wall/door/whatever.

If you kicked a VAX on my watch, you'd get exactly what you asked for: A voided warranty. We had shock indicators inside for a reason.
