Disk drives suck less than they did a couple of years ago. Which is nice

Touch wood!

I agree, I haven't see a drive fail in several years now and yet they use to die all the time - I still have a pile of NAS drives that I bought several years ago to keep the company servers running - I haven't even opened the boxes.

But on the other hand, I powered up an ST-506 this weekend and I think my hearing is still affected - it was absolutely deafening ... OK, so it was in a Xerox 820, about 40 years old and at least it still rotated ... until I slung it in the recycle bin.
