I bought a brand new 3.5″ Firewire/USB Hard Drive case today. It only cost $59.99, including cables and a nifty nylon carrying case, so I wasn’t entirely surprised when it didn’t work.

But before I return it to the store to exchange it for a slightly higher-quality model, I thought I’d share some of the more eloquent passages from its installation manual:

Thank you to make choice of purchase the Epass product. Please the careful reading this manual, collect and keep it to have other time consults.
