I've had a busy weekend getting some important jobs done and some model work completed. I'm afraid I didn't take any photo's so you'll just have to take my word for it. I've also been away and back again on company business so all told its been a very busy few days and I'm feeling pretty done in. And its only Tuesday!!
On Saturday, with the help of my youngest daughter, I built some of the 4Ground MDF buildings I purchased at SELWG. These were two sets of shops and a terrace of three houses. I now have quite a collection of these, more than enough to represent a small village or the edge of a larger town on the games table. The young Padawan enjoyed helping and took great pleasure in correcting me when I read the instructions wrong!
I also painted my first set of 6mm tanks (three Tiger I's) although I don't consider them finished yet as I have yet to base them. I'm still waiting for the flat edged MDF bases I ordered from warbases.com to arrive. I only ordered them Friday and expect delivery in a day or two. Once I have these I'll do a few experiments to work out the style of the base dressing I want to use for my new armies. I want to keep things simple but also consistent so I need to settle on a particular style before I start painting and basing in earnest.
The computers will be sent for recycling but the hard drives are staying with me, for a few weeks at least. Formatting isn't a cast iron guarantee of erasing all data from a hard drive so I have elected to use the best 'free' wiping technique I know. Total destruction in the heart of a November 5th Bonfire. I'm not sure what old Guy Fawkes would have made of this!
Burning em will certainly completely destroy them but there´s gold im them thar bits!!! :-DReplyDelete
hammer or free software such as killdisk will do the job.ReplyDelete
That should do the job; you hear so many horror stories of how hard drives end up in the wrong hands.ReplyDelete
Didn't take you long to get a lick of paint on them tanks did it??ReplyDelete
You just can't beat the analogue approach of physically destroying all the porn, er, I mean data, yeah data, you have on those drives.ReplyDelete
Have have fun, PyroBoy!
Well we can be pretty sure Mr. Fawkes wouldn't say "Got that environmental impact statement ready?" ;)ReplyDelete
The Luddite in me finds something strangely beautiful in those there flames.ReplyDelete
How long do hard drives keep information after being taken out? I have two hard drives, that were taken out yrs ago. How can I upload the info from them?ReplyDelete
