    That thing would make an excellent fictional power source.

    Indeed it would. I bet it sounds awesome.

    Sometimes, as I’m leaving the house, I look at my cell phone, laptop, and MP3 player, and just focus on the fact that I’m carrying around way more processing power and memory than the guys who put astronauts on the moon would have ever dreamed of.

    A pocket calculator has more processing power than the Apollo command module!

I put it in quotes because what is normally considered the conditions inside the sun is laughable when considered from a scientific standpoint. I’m truly surprised that even today mainstream science likes to pretend gravity causes pressures inside the sun that creates fusion.

    That’s a HDA (Head/Disk Assembly) from an IBM 3380 disk drive. I used to work with those in the late 1980s/early 1990s. If you look at the picture, you will see what appears to be two linear voice coil head assemblies, one on each side of the platter. That’s exactly what is there! Each disk had two completely separate head assemblies, one on each side of the disk, reading and writing off the same platters. What this meant was that the operating system could read or write on two different places on the disk at once. This could massively speed… Read more »
