that is pretty kewl, but I would never attempt it
I did attempt it about a year ago - ended up destroying one of my hdds. The room wasn't clean enough, some dust got into the platters and it began to affect the heads gradually.
I am kind of curious as to what the hell the point is, but it seemed like it was an article worth showing people here....
The point is that it looks cool if your case is open or if it has a window.
yeah i guess so.... i wanted to do all that sort of stuff because my machines are the heart of my home entertainment system and it would be cool to impress guests with all of that plus broadband downloading and playing mp3s, etc... but really at the moment I don't have the time and from day to day am more thankful just that everything works....
