It is just heartbreaking and painful to look at these pictures. All this beauty... gone, just like that...
"Please lower the pants below the sock so that you can't see them and put a bottle of Soju in front of me."
"Please make this picture look as dangerous as it did in the movie Peppermint Candy and that the train is pulling up."
This is a real 3.78 gig hard drive from the 70s and it shows just how much we have advanced technology over the last few years.
This is a late 70's early 80's hard drive, it weights 80 pounds, and has a whopping 3.78GB. It cost 250K, and was used by banks to store account data.
These drives where built on rubber mounts to reduce shock when the are moved for maintenance on their tracks.
This is the input for that Halon gas that the drives where filled with while in operation. Halon gas is a deadly gas that is pumped into the drives that makes them fire-proof, if there was a fire, the room they where in would be filled with halon gas as well, giving any operators in the room only one minute to get out.
This is the underside, the drives weighed 80-90 pounds, so they where put on tracks to slide on for maintenance.
there was a modern 300-400 gig credit card sized hard drive placed inside to give you guys an idea of how massive these 3.78 gig drives where.
