I would like to see someone do it.

3 times is not much, it'll take about 35 times of overwriting the drive with a pattern like that to get rid of it to a point of making impossible (99% depending on luck, equipment, and quality of program), so 3 isn't that many times. Eraser is a good tool for Windows users, it gives you *excellent* options, you can even make your own patter to overwrite your hard drive with :-). shred is a good command for UNIX to do that also.
