One comment on “Life for Sale on Ebay

  1. If you’re selling Macbook1…boot off the installation dvd, by inserting the DVD and turning on the macbook while holding down the “C” key. Then use the disk utility program, in the utilities menu, to do a secure erase of the hard drive. This will prevent whoever buys the machine from retrieving your personal data off the machine after you sell it. A seven-pass wipe is considered secure by the US government, and should be more than adequate for your use. If you’re truly paranoid, do a 35-pass wipe…and expect to spend a few day waiting for it it finish running.
