Backyard drive destruction. No indication of the time it took to melt
the drive down though. No Thermite involved, so you can do it at home
without worrying about the MiB paying too much attention to you.
Main benefit: you don't run the risk of depleting your system's
Main drawback: can't sell the drive second-hand on eBay for anything
approaching its replacement value.
