Submission + - Norco Cases May Kill 3TB Drives (wsyntax.com)

cyanoacry writes: "I recently upgraded some 2TB Seagate drives in my file server to 3TB drives, only to find out that the Norco hot-swap case I used couldn't handle them. (Several chips in the case caught fire). Worse, the Norco case killed 6 of my drives, 2 with visible destruction. I'm out 13TB of data, so beware when buying Norco."

Comment Fusor Documentation (Score 2, Interesting) 401

I've built a fusor while in high school (a couple of years ago), and it's certainly within the reach of a dedicated person, or somebody with lots of support.

More info for the interested at http://stores.lulu.com/raymondj .

For me the fusor wasn't really an end so much as a starting point: it is an educational experience that is unmatched, because to build a fusor, you've got to have a grasp of high voltage, high vacuum, and gas management systems. Learning about these things in theory is nice, but there is nothing that can compare to slaving over a hot wrench after bolting down your chamber for the last hour and leak checking every single seal.

And, if anything, it does look good on a resume.
