My New Coaster

Unfortunately, hard drives don’t last forever. But you can keep using them. Here is my friend Kevin‘s external hard drive shortly after it died.

I love opening electronic equipment after it no longer is in use, so that’s what I did with the hard drive. I left it sitting on my desk after opening it. I started using it as a coaster for my coffee cup.

A few days later I came across some of those rubber footpads that are used to keep things from scratching up your table. I stuck four of those to the bottom to keep my “coaster” from scratching my desk.

    I’m so glad you finally wrote this post. It was awesome watching you create the thing first hand from the desk next to you. Cheers! I think you have fathered a new trend!
