To those of us that know better, it was a funny article but to a novice that is interested in learning and following instructions from written authorities, if he did not read to the end prior to starting the cleaning it would be disasterous. Heads on a disk drive floated at around 125 ten thousandths of an inch above the disk plate except when locked in position out of use. There are numerous seniors (55-85((older))) that have just been given or bought a computer and do not know how to turn it on, that would be interested in trying to clean their dirty computer. Roge Area Senion Assistance League (over 1000 members to date)Probably has several!!

I am so upset. I followed the instructions on my 20gig maxtor drive, and only when I got to the end did I realize it was a joke. I dont' want a humor transplant, I want someone to replace my hard drive, or at least make ti work again. I am major steamed here. I am dripping with... I can't say it, but I am sure you plug in the word. I'll tell you tomarrow what the word is.
