Warlordtrooper: I have a major problem with the tampering with evidence charge. It's asinine and against all concept of property rights that if you own a piece if property those rights don't extend to the ability to destroy in
Gyrfalcon: or, like a place where I used to work, you leave the hard drive on the floor and the janitors vacuum with one of those vacuum cleaners that have the magnets on the front to pick up paper clips and whatnot and they keep bumping into it.
Oldiron_79: I always thought thermite would be the best way to make sure "the man" would never be able to recover anything from your hard drive.
twistedmetal: I have a feeling, he's going to see a lot of wang in prison.
gfid: Oldiron_79: I always thought thermite would be the best way to make sure "the man" would never be able to recover anything from your hard drive.They either already have you under surveillance or they don't. If they do, they probably already have the contents of your hard drive. If they don't, you're probably safe just throwing that hard drive in the trash bin at your local 7-11 or gas station or wherever. Nobody's going to find it and decide to go to the trouble of seeing what's on it. It's just trash at that point.I mean I hope so anyway.
ladyfortuna: RKade: Megan's law is unconstitutional.How so? Honestly asking.I know it's been said in here that distributing copies doesn't make a victim 'more molested' or whatever... but increasing their notoriety can't be a good thing. Not to mention more variety feeds into the creeper's deviancy.
farvour: What? No mention of how this idiot should have been using TrueCrypt?
omnimancer28: farvour: What? No mention of how this idiot should have been using TrueCrypt?Judge - Decrypt the contents of your computer for the police.Defendant - Uh, no.Judge - I sentence you to 30 days in jail for contempt. In 30 days you can come back and I will ask again.((repeat indefinitely))
sheep snorter: Thermite that computer drive.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-ckechIqW0/House fire optional
Asa Phelps: yeah, uh, static magnetic fields won't erase stuff that way.I've got a bulk eraser from the 60's that was used to wipe reel-to-reel tape. I have used it to demagnetize a hammer. I'm not certain it would erase a hard drive.
Satanic_Hamster: CygnusDarius: From the comments:I'm absolutely shocked that liberal Rutgers expelled him!!! Wasn't he just looking at art or something? doesn't he have the right to.......................................................whatever? We need as a society to accept those that are different from us! How was he hurting anyone by viewing images? Especially in the privacy of his own home? Who are we to judge??? lol Rutgers has an ethical standard???? You learn something new everyday!I'm guessing a troll?.Or crazy retard.Also from the comments:Briar Patch9 hours ago200 images of child porn and three years in jail.The sentence doesn't seem to fit the crime. Those children will be scarred for life.I don't think Briar Patch realizes how computers work. They don't molest a kid and then send a single image to him. Sharing the images doesn't cause the kid to be more molested.

forgotmydamnusername: Has anybody considereded microwaving a hard drive? Not the same technology, of course, but a microwave oven sure does entertaining things to CDs.
gfid: I don't feel as strongly as the person you responded to, but it is kind of a bullshiat charge to throw at someone. Of course you're supposed to hide, destroy obfuscate any evidence. Criminals try to get away with crimes.
gfid: What next? Tacking on a charge of not notifying a security guard at a bank that you had a gun before robbing it?
TheOmni: I, like many totally normal people, have spent an entirely reasonable amount of time thinking about how I would go about doing illegal things, like building and maintaining a crystal methamphetamine trading company. Including various fail safes and the destruction of evidence in the evident of being caught. Never once did I consider powerful magnets in my shoes to attack a hard drive. So bonus points for imagination.
Ed Grubermann: forgotmydamnusername: Has anybody considereded microwaving a hard drive? Not the same technology, of course, but a microwave oven sure does entertaining things to CDs.Won't do a thing. The shell forms a Faraday cage.
Gyrfalcon: That said, what the hell do you have on your hard drive that needs that kind of encryption, Mr. Putin?
labman: Yeah, because hard drives don't already have powerful magnets in them. You'd need a degauser to kill a drive quickly. (Or submerge it in water while its running)
hardinparamedic: See, this is why you use the local MRI machine. It'll erase anything.
MrHappyRotter: Go ahead cops. On my computer, you won't find a single porn: child, horse, clown or otherwise.
Kahabut: Yes, a degauser will work, maybe. Since they were designed for use on floppy disks, and they were intended to wipe the disk, not destroy it, the chances are it won't actually be strong enough to wipe the drive.
Firethorn: Kahabut: Yes, a degauser will work, maybe. Since they were designed for use on floppy disks, and they were intended to wipe the disk, not destroy it, the chances are it won't actually be strong enough to wipe the drive.THat depends on the degausser, this one is designed for HD's too:[localherodesign.com image 500x315]Please note that it's ~5' tall, weighs over 400 pounds, and takes 40 seconds to erase a HD.
Stephen_Falken: If I did it:1. TrueCrypt with renamed executable, installation path and changed icon2. AES-Twofish-Serpent encryption with Whirlpool hash algorithm3. Two-level volume partitioning using a hidden volume: creates a deniable file systemOr of course you know, you could also just not be a f*cking pervert. Just sayin.
IsNoGood: Most modern hdd are glas disks so just flapping hit it...
Firethorn: You could probably take an unpowered drive and throw it across the room without damaging the platters.
