    Today's Interesting Discovery: Linux System Entropy

    Today one of my journey's took me down a path in search of hard drive erasure at the most secure of levels. I found a nice DoD compliant freeware hard drive data annihilator program. But in my search today I came across something most intriguing: system entropy. It seems linux is trying to harness the [raw?] power of chaos, mwahahahahahaha. Having read up on it I'm not nearly amazed at the idea as when I first caught the phrase in a readme file. But I thought I would share it anyway since my search for "entropy" here at the TIMO came up mostly bare in relation to this specific.
