Yes! Another great app from a great amateur developer! And it's free! Keep up the good work, Ollie! It's great to see that the little guy can win too! P.S. Why a hammer? I would have gone along with the name, and used a flame-thrower.

What's wrong with Finder's "Secure Empty Trash" ? Also, if your files are really that sensitive, why not keep them in an encrypted disk image or use the File Vault feature? That way, even if the file is recovered, it is unlikely to be able to be read. Otherwise, it would nice to drop files or folders onto the app to securely delete them, and some feedback when it was done would be nice too.
