Article #243 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: aj008@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Aaron M. Barnes) Subject: 1050 Position Posted-By: xx004 (aa700 - Michael Current) Edited-By: xx004 (aa700 - Michael Current) Date: Fri Oct 4 20:16:38 1991 I currently have my 1050 sitting up sideways on its left side to conserve desk space. My question: Will this cause any problems? Thanks. -- Aaron Matthew Barnes firstname.lastname@example.org Cleveland,Ohio USA Huey Lewis and the News Fore!-ever. *** Answered by Michael Current, aa700: I don't believe there is a definitive answer to this question. I've heard people argue against, and I've heard of people running their drives sideways without a hitch. There's no fundamental reason why a drive can't be run sideways - the old Percom drives were designed that way. To me, I'd rather have a little less desk space than run the risk of damage to my drive, however small that risk may be.
