i found some more hard drives to destroy sat on our front door step and took them apart before clonking them with a hammer.  it really is a joy smashing these things up. you should try it.

if you’ve never opened up a computer you’ll be surprised to learn that they get all their knowledge and information by reading newspapers like the daily telegraph.  when you surf the web the computer is actually creating the pages for you based on it’s own experience.

funkypancake only exists in the mind of your computer.  fact.
