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.
