Drill a small hole into a fire-resistant safe where your power and SCSI/IDE/SATA/USB/ETH cables go, then put your drives in there.

For extra safety, block up any gaps around the cables with newspaper or alcohol soaked cloth.

And don't be afraid to get in there with a lit match or a lighter to ensure that you have everything patched tight.

For instance, Millin owns, has sold, or has bartered away,,,,,,, and more than 1,000 other domain names that can be yours (including, which he owns), as long as you've got the startup idea to back it up. Millin doesn't sell domain names anymore, instead, he trades them to startups in exchange for a stake in the company.
