    Hard Disk

  3. aib Says:

    It’s a 5-bit optic hard drive. The 1-bits are seen as green and the 0-bits are seen as red in the photograph. The blue stands for “File Not Found” (or a bad sector for non-TDWTF readers.)

  4. Adrian Says:

    Drive motor and *** *** from a fibre optic *** *** / ***.

  5. Josh Says:

    Can you not read Adrian? It’s very frustrating when people don’t follow instructions. It ruins it for the rest of us trying to play the game.

  6. eczema treat Says:

    I think Aib forgot to read the instructions too? I’ll be the first to say, I have no clue what it is…looks interesting though.

  7. R3 Says:

    The thingy that controls the traffic lights.

  8. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Adrian,

    Please email in your guess. There is an email link in the post.

  9. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Aib,

    I think you have that a bit wrong. You are quoting the old standard for IDE hard drives, the new SATA drives use the new HDD ISA standard where green is now the data error signal. 🙂

  10. Zach Schmidt Says:

    It’s the *** *** from a vertically mounted *** ***. There would normally be an *** *** up from *** it into the *** *** of ***. (I think)

  11. bob Says:

    *** *** ***

  12. Alan Parekh Says:
