    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks.

    Have a look here.....How to Securely Erase a Mac OS X Hard Disc or Volume | eHow.com

    MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE RIGHT DISK ! You wouldn't want to erase your internal disk :-)
