Daten wirklich sicher löschen – Einmal überschreiben genügt–/news/meldung/121855

„Seit Jahrzehnten hält sich die Mär, dass man Daten auf Festplatten mehrfach mit unterschiedlichen Mustern überschreiben muss, um sie wirklich sicher zu löschen. Und das obwohl selbst spezialisierte Datenrettungsunternehmen unumwunden zugeben: Wenn eine Festplatte auch nur einmal mit Nullen überschrieben wird, sind alle Daten unwiederbringlich verloren.“

„Der dd-Befehl jeder x-beliebigen Linux-Distribution tut’s ganz vorzüglich“

Spart somit auch eine ganze Menge Zeit, bevor die Festplatte dann mit guten Gewissen in andere Hände gegeben werden kann.

Buiding home linux robot – The Qwerk Bot

Ikea Linux Cluster

Nein, kein Fall von ich habe die Anleitung falsch gelesen und nun etwas komplett anderes gebaut.

„3D computer rendering are very CPU intensive and the best way so speed up slow render problems, are usually to distribute them on to more computers. Render farms are usually very large, expensive and run using ALLOT of energy. I wanted to build something that could be put in my home, not make too much noise and run using very little energy… and be dirt cheep, big problem? 🙂 no computer stuff cost almost nothing these days, it just a matter of finding fun stuff to play with.“
