Afaik, erasing a disk 7x7 times using a truly random source of
entrophy, using the proton decay multiplexed with the frequency of
solar flares on alpha centauri, and just dd'ing /dev/zero to the drive

Please kill this urban legend about the fantastical methods of
retrieval using a scanning electron microscope and read individual
atoms - ok, that may work, but damnit, how many of you have shit that
requires that level of protection? If you do, just apply thermite
