Was using my laptop today hanging a external USB drive off it to play music off my Transporter with Rubinstein playing Chopin's Funeral Match.

I had it on a small coffee stand, slipped and let the USB drive fell to the floor detached from the laptop. The music continued playing with the buffer, expecting the worse I reattached the drive, the music kept playing without missing one single beat.

This is kudos to the excellent fault tolerance of Slimsever and modern hard drives.

You do need to give some kudos to your OS as well. I assume this is Windows. So as much as many would be loth to do so, it is testament to how well windows handles devices dripping off and then being re-attached :)
