    On my Windows machines, I can completely wipe a disk clean with Diskpart's "clean" command. Is there a parallel command for Macs?

    Can be done with Ubuntu/other linux, using liveCD:

    Code:
    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<yourDrive> bs=512 count=100000
    PS: What's with your arbitrary username? :S
