I made the mistake of loaning my old PowerBook to a PC person who ostensibly wanted "to learn how Macs work."  That person is now estranged and being extremely vindictive, and I'm having trouble getting my PowerBook back.  I know, I was an idiot.

 

Everything that's on the PowerBook is also on my current Mac, so I can afford to lose the info.  However, I really can't afford to have it in someone else's hands (particularly not this person's hands).  I'm a prime candidate for identity theft.

 

The Aluminum G4 12-inch PowerBook is running Tiger … and so can't connect to the Cloud.

 

Is there any way to wipe it remotely?  Or otherwise disable it?

 

All insights welcome.  Thank you.
