Some friends of customers have older hardware that they
want to dispose of. I got involved because they have
data on a hard drive that they _don't_ want broadcast
(dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/hda) but was wondering if
there was a useful, long-term answer I could offer.

BTW, yes, these are WA people & for a couple of months
at least, I'm in WA.

Cheers; Leon
