Many years ago, waiting for a flying job I did some temp-labor work. We were salvaging and scrapping large copiers. After removing the reusable components like cooling fans etc. and removing the sheet metal for scrap, we sawed the frames apart in key places and then my job - I got to attack the circuit boards with a chisel and baby sledge hammer.
Damn that was fun. Transistors and diodes flying in all direction. Take that, technology! Die, silicon demons!
Question: How about powerful degaussers, or bulk video erasers? Will those wipe hard disks to the point of making them unrecoverable?
Just remembered - my first revenge on technology. When I was in high school I had an alarm clock that ticked so loudly it kept me from sleeping sometimes. One day I came home from school after nodding off in class all day because of it. I took the alarm clock out back and blew its little brass guts out with my .303 British. Felt good!
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
