towel_bird: How to prepare a computer for disposal.

At the dump, my parents were told to hand their old computers to a guy named Ernie.  They did not trust the guy named Ernie with their hard drives or any of the data on them.  So they asked me how to definitively get all the data off the drives.  After I tried suggesting to take the drive to a tech who could wipe it, with them insisting it wasn't thorough enough, I moved to what I call the "Eddie Izzard solution." 1. You carefully locate, unscrew, and remove hard drive, full of sensitive data.
2. Then you smash it with a hammer.
3. Take everything to the dump. Beatles music optional. So...yeah.
