Agreed with above comment.
LiveCD OS, "what if the fuzz" situation then,... make an execution
2 wires clipped to opposite sides of your board plugged into a switch
connected directly to your wall outlet. (radioshack/home made) throw the
switch and watch the smoke. end of ram. and end of your computer lol. if
no retarded magnetic disks. flash media retains data until its reset or
written over. but fast flash media is ok for quick format in any os. or
why the need for such waste of hardware??when you go to jail can you
donate your hardware? do something nice :)
Email. talk about unsecure lol. If you use email as a secured method of
communication, than u are pro. lol.
how about some old skewl dial up on prepaid sat phones? mm. proxy
through the grate phirewall of china? hmm.
fun stuff, all in theory ofcourse. glwt
