Wristwatch with ye old red LEDs – Hack a Day

Like I said, I'm a sucker for LEDs - especially 70's/80's style red and amber types.

Although I really like the watch concept, the design in the post isn't my thing. Give me simplicity.

What a failing hard drive sounds like.

I'm emptying a USB drive as I type this so I can back up the bad drive. I thought it would be fun to post the nasty sound it was making in the mean time.  This is the first hard drive to ever fail on me - it's also not one of the oldest HD's I have either. Scary.

Oh no!

It's been doing nothing but running FEH. I walk up to it and it says it had a read/write error. I restart it and this.
Crap!
