i don't think it's gonna work
stupid post office return the letter i sent, and all that was left was a torn piece of envelope and not even an apology letter, it was more like "oh thanks for using our services, your letter got damage and here's what's left" . a "we screwed up and we're sorry" woulda been better.

It'll work. HDD's are tough as balls, the only thing that kills them is time and MFG defects (and direct static zaps to the circuit board, which bubble wrap won't do readily)

If she'd used peanuts, it'd be dead.

The post office handles 600,000,000 pieces of mail each day. You expect them to apologize?
