Disk drive fired 'Frisbees of death' across data centre after storage admin crossed his wires


Nova 3

I used a DG Nova 3 when I started at GEC in 1979. Usually a nice, quiet system although taller than me and wider than I was at the time, perhaps not now though. Even when an engineer was checking out the disk it stayed relatively quiet but with the cabinet open and the disk slid out for access, the movement of the heads caused the machine to shake from side to side.
