And then you decided to close off with a nice, unnecessarily dickish comment.

Funny thing, I didn't make any comment regarding the "typical" Slashdot reader. I used the term "any". Are so naive to believe that people who do this would never patronize this site?

Maybe you should read a little more carefully before you accuse someone of being dickish? Maybe grammar isn't your thing? Maybe you shouldn't be so damn sensitive?

At our company the policy is to destroy all drives withdrawn from operations. The problem is with our local IT support telling management they've destroyed the drive but then selling them for their own personal gain. They're already stealing property so I doubt that they're much concerned about proprietary/sensitive data.

We had a similar problem several years back when we switched 1,000+ CRT monitors to LCDs. The CRTs weren't the issue, no one wanted them, rather it was the DVI cables. The techs used the old VGA cables and sold the DVI cables on EBAY for $5 bucks a piece.

Of course this is something no reader of SlashDot would ever condone... Right...

The warmest year on record is now 1934. 1998 (long trumpeted by the media as record-breaking) moves to second place. 1921 takes third. In fact, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record now all occur before World War II.
