A funny story about one of those ~200MB SCSI's - a friend was
helping install some 'diskless' workstations, so they gave him
the disks and he gave me one, a Maxtor. I had it on a pc, laying
on top of a table and one day it went "BLAM!" like someone set
off a firecracker, and the pc shut down. Turned power off/on and it
came right back like nothing had happened! Turned out to be
a reversed biased diode across the power lines let got - nothing
