Somewhere on teh intarweb "EMB" typed:

I was given something etremely similar to that, only at least twice as big,
when Auckland Zoo decided to get rid of it. (I knew a guy who worked there,
who knew I was interested in computers.)

I really didn't know what to do wth it, it was completely out of my league.
I was using an Amiga 500 at the time. I ended up getting some extremely good
quality fans out of it and a mate got some bits for projects. He said the
stepper motors out of the HDDs in particular were very handy.

I was told that the zoo paid mega-bucks for it when they bought it. Like,
more than the price of a nice family home and section.

I still have one or two of the fans. <g>
