Just be careful about extracting the toxic stuff ;p

I like the smooth coolness of this photo.

I like today's quote ... adds mystery to this object.

Mysterious object! It reminds me a bit of a revolver cylinder.

This is part of a hard disk (no revolver cylinder, BAP, sorry, ;-)). (For scale: there is my fingerprint in the left of the photo).
If I remember right this hard disk suffered a head crash and I am sure, the former owner would be very happy if he/she could just melt it down to get all the bits and bytes back, ;-).
I thought this photo would need some explanation, ;-).

Nice picture! Very mysterious. Thanks for your explanation.

Oh dear, the sad remains of a disk crash, looking all the more sombre for being in black and white.

I can empathize with the former owner. I had a hard drive that lasted a month or two before it died on me.
