Good use for old, 80GB 3.5" hard drive

If it does not work, open it and try to repair it.

If it works, and you are tired of killing working drives...

tar czv /data/$1 | aespipe > /mnt/$1.tgz.aes

...fill your harddrive with data you'd like to keep, and bury it in the woods on a moonless night.

On a unrelated note... it seems Nokia N900 does not have as many capacitors at it should have. If you battery is too old, it will be still good enough to power most functions, but not the GSM/SIM card parts, resulting in network errors, no calls possible, etc. Problem mysteriously goes away with newer battery...
