I was just wondering, is there a utility for the Windows operating system (particularly Windows 7) that can zero out the free space on your NTFS volumes, similar to the feature in OS X's Disk Utility?

Ah, cool, thank you for the link!

Things have been pretty nice here for the past few days. The monsoon season, unusually, went by without much weather change at all (maybe one dust storm in July), but two days ago we had a couple of insane storms. It rained, hailed, and the wind blew, all extremely hard, and had a couple tornadoes. All of those are pretty unusual for this part of Arizona, especially when you consider the crazy amount of rain we got and the amount of damage it caused. The good thing, though, is that everything has turned green here. =P

In some of the northern regions of Arizona, namely Flagstaff, where it gets much cooler than here, we had even more powerful storms, and a couple of tornadoes.

It's starting to feel like it may be cooling down here finally. We've been in the hundreds until the storms earlier this week, so the nineties are a nice break in the weather. I have a feeling we may be having more hot weather next week until the end of October... I think this winter may be a nice break in the temperatures, hopefully, and give us a break from the extreme heat we get here that's lasted longer than normal. =)

Know Flagstaff well and yes those storms would be most unusual an d blame it all on the El Ninio effect.
