    Or if you wanted to take the non-violent/destructive route, you could have just used a magnetic degauser

    We used to use one for wiping VHS assessment videos, but I have to say it... lump hammer Cheesecake!!

    Then the Jaz drives came out. Remember those? 2GB on something the size of a floppy disk. Minds were blown. Then flash technology came out and that was the end of that.

    Yeah I remember them well 1GB then the 2GB followed. Seemed like a ridiculous amount of space at the time...
