Okay I know its geeky but I'm after peoples used and unwanted hard disks. I want to take the platters out of them to rebuild my collection of hard disk platters. See, before I left my previous company I had built up a 100 platter collection and left them on my desk in my "desk toys" collection. When they packed up my stuff they didn't see them as desk toys and threw them out..

Hard disk platters are cool.

So, if you have small useless hard disks that you do not want any more and can part with then feel free to send them my way. I will crack them open, throw away the shell and add the platters to my collection of drives.

Actually I wont thorw away the outsides, I will send the outsides to recycling next time I wander up to ByteBack with a stash of electronic waste.

That's fine... You'll have to collect the box of disks after I get back from New Zealand in two weeks!

You just want to mine our data and find all our secretz!

I might have a failed disk lying around, but not sure. On a related note, I agreed to throwing out an old iMac, then remembered to late that removing the hard disk first would be wise. Hopefully any new owner will just wipe and start anew.

I take it you're interested in different sizes? I disected my 3G iPod and brought the hard disk on Friday night... then forgot to give it to you.
