This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.
Today, while working on the final project for my database class, I realized that I could use the hard drive magnets stuck to my fridge for more productive purposes than having a 6"x3"x2" cardboard-box magnet.
First, I taped a magnet to my Nerf Maverick:
After that, I taped a second magnet to my chair, originally experimenting with different separators between magnet and tape to reduce attraction. This wasn’t really necessary as it turns out - the unseparated magnet is just barely attractive enough.
Instead of rooting down on my desk shelf grasping for the handle, I can just yank it right off and aim out my door in the blink of an eye.
