    Light it on fire and dance around it naked while chanting in tongues.

    So should I take the magnets to it, then sledgehammer it, then light the pieces on fire?

    Don't forget the dancing around naked and chanting. It's important.

    DBAN on a 7 time wipe, and use a high speed drill or a drill press to put a bunch of holes in each platter. Works great.
    And thats how you get ants!

    Smart Computing Article - Be Safe & Erase

    The U.S. DoD (Department of Defense) outlines standards for hard drive erasing (or "sanitizing") in its National Industry Security Program Operating Manual, which provides guidelines for preventing unauthorized disclosure of classified information. As part of a "clearing and sanitization matrix," the DoD recommends erasing a hard drive by either degaussing with a Type I or Type II degausser; overwriting the drive with random characters; or destroying the drive by disintegrating, incinerating, pulverizing, shredding, or melting. While some of these methods will indeed prevent hard drive data recovery, not all of them are either practical or particularly effective.

    But what if photos/video evidence of this end up on someone else's hard drive? Then I'd have to start the cycle again.
