Rented Computers.
    #1315918 - 02/18/03 06:22 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I have to give back my computer because it is a rental from Colortyme. I have to format the whole thing. Has anyone rented a computer before and returned it???

I am giving it back because along with all the other junk we got from them, the bill is way too much now....

FEED ME SOME FEEDBACK :shocked:

yes, use a low level format or a program that'll write over your entire hard disk many times to completely get rid of the data. You don't want to get in trouble because a simple data recovery can recover almost all your data. You see that news article about this group at a university that bought a bunch of used computers off ebay and even they were formatted they recovered credit card numbers, personal informations and lots of porn.

Agreed, if you have anything even remotely incriminating wipe that HD big time.

HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHHAHAH!!

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

If you can afford to rent a computer, then you can afford the couple hundred to buy one.

Hell, If you pay for shipping I'll send you a computer. It won't be any good, but it will work.
