I have a small stack of dead drives that I keep around (maybe as charms?)
testifying to this as well. I have had maybe 3-4 MB or CPU failures since the
80s (that failed during normal operation), and a small mountain of dead disks.
Thinking back on it... I've spent a hell of a lot of money on computers. ;)
I've had a few PSU failures too. One spectacular one that sounded like a
gunshot when the power cap blew. I was working in a hydrogen lab at the time,
and to say that it startled me would be an understatement.
