1. Don't forget double boiling and its benefits to the DR industry.

2. There should be a topic on Frank'n'drives and how to deal with them.

Don't forget to include sources for "Hard Drive Spray", and
"Pixy Dust".

From my understanding there is also a new "Percussive Maintenance"
tool available now .
