Tip: if you make an external storage device, please be sure to give it blinkenlights so that I can be reassured I'm dd'ing to the right device

@sir s/external// (I wish my motherboards SATA controller would display the activities separately)
@sir by the time you notice the light the first 2M are already gone

@sir ..but also make them dim enough so watching a movie from it doesn’t turn a dark room into a one-coloured light show

@sir Even better: have a locator LED like servers

@federico3 @sir
Actually… just reading some data to blink the led is a way to locate the disk, never thought of that!

@sir Gotta love the disk destroyer. Blinkenlights just ruin the suspense.
