Talking how many times will your optical drives open and close?

LOL I was really bored about two days ago, just thought Id get other peoples numbers too, I had a very old 16x CD drive, I threw it in an old Packard Bell desktop, (SIMM RAM) thats very old, anywho I opened and closed the drive to my hearts content until it stopped working. if you want the exact number of times here it is, 1,374.5 (yes point 5 because it got halfway out and stopped). it wouldnt do anything after that, how many times will your drive pop out?
