Now that I am living on my own, and not in a nice big expensive house far from the city, in a not the best location (better then most, but still) I am thinking about theft. Of course I have insurance for my place and all my things but there is alot of crap on my system that I wouldn't want other people to have, I have backups of it offsite so the issue isn't losing that info. For awhile now you can remote wipe a smartphone, I have mine setup to do that. It's quite cool. Is there away I can do this for my desktop system, log into a webpage or application and click a button and my system is wiped clean, un-usable? I know it needs to be able to connect to the system through the internet, it must be possible right? I was thinking about using Truecrypt on my system, but that slows down the system right if everything is encrypted and I have to uncrypt to use. And someone could technically get passed that if they really wanted too, a wipe means no luck for them.
