I am the grit in the gears, the missing bolt, I am the poker of sticks into spokes. I like to know how things work, but sometimes when I take them apart and rebuild them, I have a few pieces left over. I am a man, so I tend to leave reading the instructions until after it goes wrong. And like all men I have a comprehensive mental map of the world and never need to ask directions. I never get lost, only sometimes I'm late, or end up in the wrong place entirely. It's what we do.

Just what I need!
I just bought a second hand notebook computer, a bargain in the Police lost property auction. It works fine, but the hard drive is decidedly trivial in capacity....
I'm going to fillet the old drive, and transplant a 250 Gb 2.5" Western Digital drive into its place. The WD drive is, when I look at it, a tiny engineering marvel, only 2 and a half inches across, yet it spins at 5400 rpm, and stores 25,600 times as much as the drive pictured.
Oh. And it costs less than a tank of diesel.
