Shucking Western Digital My Book 8 TB WDBBGB0080HBK-EESN

I just bought 2 Western Digital My Book 8 TB for EUR 157,55 each (incl. 25% VAT because communist Swede here) from amazon.de. The goal was to extract the drives and insert them as regular SATA drives into my home server for extra storage.

I figured I could share how I did this without destroying a single plastic pin on the external enclosure.

Peugeot 107 Extreme Cold Start -30ºC (-22ºF)

Starting a Peugeot 107 after it have been standing in -30ºC without a block heater for about 24 hours.

After the car started and we got rid of all the ice, we went out driving for over an hour (picking up a friend etc) and it worked fine except that the car didn’t get that warm so it was still only a few degrees inside the car.
