Funny you should mention this. I just saw snippet on TV the other day of a
story coming out this week about recycled computers being sources of loads
of information after they're sold into new hands. In fact the voice over
was saying how data on hard drives was recoverable almost totally if you
knew how to do it. The biggest problem cited was the computers coming out
of government offices.
Now if I could remember what station I was watching - did any other linkers
see the short or the story itself?
