If you've ever wondered how perpendicular recording works, Hitachi has made the science lesson a little easier. It explains the details behind perpendicular hard drives in cartoon form with music. Take it away Hitachi (make sure your sound is up).

Feel free to discuss this most excellent technical document ever in our forum .

Just some pics of some mach repairs, classic broken flex lines, and one also ripped its capillary. Both did not want to replace the evap but Onur took 36" flex line as well as a rewire to a simple rocker on/off.
Both came out very well and suprisingly the hardest part was putting the nicebraid over the sleeve since it wouldnt go over the evaps!
Both charged with r507 and load tested to 175watts of heat load @ -25C LOAD TESTER temperatures. :hehe:

Big numbers will definitly come out of hopefully all my pressies, 530/540/550 :P I think I'll get an e4300 hopefully too, but I'd prefer to pickup a e6700 ;)

Thanks guys, indeed they do look sweet, there still on my kitchen table. I've worked out a system now for repairing flex lines on Machs' that I can get one into vacuum with all actual hard modifications done in about an hour.
