dmcgraw, if you remove the current drive's partition then establish a new partition, you will for all intense have wiped the drive from the HDD. Now you can start from scratch with a clean drive. Just be careful which partition you remove from the HDD. You don't need a special program to accomplish this.

For FF users (with Walnut theme especially), do the normal "copy link location", paste it in the URL bar, and see what comes up. It looks nice :)

It is a very good site to practice your programming skills and to improve your knowledge about network security.
It contains highly informative articles and the challenges are also good.
It is for all i.e. from beginners to pros.
