Did you use ASUS Cloud? If so the data might be up there so if you need to get rid of it you would need to login and delete as well.

Did not use Asus Cloud... I use OneDrive... Either way, a dead tablet may not stop you from logging into cloud storage with another computer.

This image begged the question.... What is this guy cutting up??

 

A quick Google search shows:

 

An Oxylance burning bar being used to cut 9ft diameter in stainless steel.

 

This was in a mill where the ladle froze up and the slugs out of the ladle are being processed to go back in the furnace.

Now who here doesn't want a thermic lance? Highly likely to be out of reach for most individual budgets, so I'm thinking shared ownership. A Geekzone community-owned thermic lance!

What could possibly go wrong?

Whatever it is that could go wrong is highly likely to only occur once per person...

PolicyGuy: "Declassification through destruction" is also the only GCSB-approved method for declassifying NZ Government classified solid-state / flash storage. IIRC into fragments no more than a couple of millimetres on a side.

 

This. GCSB's recent advice is that pretty much anything that contains flash memory can't be sanitised (or guaranteed to be sanitised). If it's been in an environment where it has been exposed to national security information classified SECRET or above it needs to be destroyed. There are a few approved destruction facilities around. I visited one in Lower Hutt a few weeks ago.
