Re: [Dataloss] hard drive destruction

For the 99% case, "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda" from a linux distrib
booted to a shell will probably suffice. Or maybe from /dev/random,
which would take much longer. I wouldn't think scammers in Nigeria
or wherever are the ones going after old drives with magnetic-force
microscopy or in-depth head-signal analysis...
Clearly, the answer is to fill the drive up with pr0n and then
send it off!
