then send the drive to people like me, or other volunteers who will then try
to recover the data, I'd recommend using different software.  Then we'll
post the results.

One of the links Adrian included in his original question had them using
an electron microscope.

For what it's worth, I found the same link a few months ago when I was
researching the same thing for campus, and passed it on to one of our CS
profs (this guy: http://www.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~iang) and he said it looked
reasonable.

Something just does not feel right about a single over write.

Of course not.  We've been told for our entire professional careers that
it's not enough.  Folk wisdom is a powerful force.
