When i first got my Pentium II system in august 1997, i accidently
unplugged the IDE interface on a drive when it was powered up (i thought
i had turned it off, but hadn't).  It fried the other drive on that
channel.  This did not make me happy, as the drive i unplugged was a
200MB drive that i was just copying some data off of, and the drive i
fried was the brand new 6.4GB drive that at the time was worth like $350
or so.  Luckily, i got the drive replaced under warranty.
