July of last year we had a little problem. We had a lot of drives to dispose of and did so as inexpensively as possible via a drill press, a lot of time, and a lot of flying metal as we slowly destroyed stacks of drives one at a time. Moving forward in time to today, we realized that our bins were once again full of drives, almost 1500 this time. This adds up to almost three petabytes of storage in disks. Knowing that it would take us days of drilling we sought out a faster solution, and here it is.
