filedestructor - a purposeful file corruption tool..

Want to play games on your Playstation but got a deadline for an exam or report that didn’t match your gaming ambitions?

Then you have come to the right place.

Send trashed files and blame your faulty computer, instead of confessing that you are a lazy bum who just wants to play videogames.

Oh, this is such an evil idea, lol. I actually "needed" something like this a few weeks ago. But I'm glad I didn't find it. :P

Heh.

A few times, I've taken some 4-page doc I'd written previously, then fux0red it up with a hex editor... saved my ass ;)

Reminds me of the Saturday Night Live' "Jiffy Express" parody commercial:

At Jiffy Express, we know how important it is to be on time. And we also know that sometimes you just can't make it. That's when you call Jiffy. We'll take the package - and the blame.

Couldnt one just open the file in notepad, insert a few garbage characters at random spots and then save the file?

My daughter says the damaged floppy trick always worked for her.

Then she could blame it on the school's computer eating her floppy on Friday, with the teacher as a witness, and buy herself till Monday to actually do the report and bring it in on a good floppy. (only works once per teacher)

Actually, i did that on a test!
It wasn't intended, i removed the floppy while it was still writing. Truth is that the test didn't go that well, i was expecting something like a 12 out of 20. I redid the test on the next day (a different test, of course), and i got 19 out of 20 ;D
(this happened on high school, not on university, of course)

I find the whole idea behind this program sick and reprehensible.  We as a community should stand up against it and all downloads should be blocked forthwith.  It could only have been written by the morally bereft in a moment of ethically challenged and unprincipled illicitness.

I love it!  So much for that business strategy report due on Monday...  :D
