Check out the post on my blog! Unconventional Hacker Well, I was at my friend's house the other day and we had a client's computer to repair. He complained that the computer BSOD'd on startup, so I figured a quick format and reinstall would fix it. Well, we pinpointed the problem to being a corrupted hard drive as not even the Setup for Windows XP/Vista would load. We tried the hard drive in multiple computers and we had the same error. So, we put in another hard drive from a computer we had laying around and it was good to go. Well, now what do you do with a hard drive that spins up but is corrupted? Take it apart of course! We took apart the top casing of the hard drive to expose the spinning disk and read/write head. We plugged it up to an extra power supply we had and watched it spin at 7200RPM. I then decided to take a screwdriver and place it on there while it was spinning, it made some crazy noises and made a cool looking effect on the disk. Then I thought of a magnificent idea. Now to the good stuff! I went and got four bottles of paint (black, white, red, and yellow) and decided to squirt it on there as it was spinning. It made some extremely cool looking patterns and was really neat while spinning. We unplugged the hard drive to see the prettiest art you will ever see on a hard drive. Here's a picture!

Tell me how you think it looks or if you have any comments, post away!
