Despite the grime. If you leave the disk in, and use the drive it more or less keeps the internals clean. I had worked at factories, where the PC's have been running for decades, when I open them up the area where they are fans are grubby, however places where there is limited airflow they are like new.

Oh just quit all the conspiracy nonsense.

1. Back in the early and mid 00's having your own email was the "Cool" thing to do. As for people in such short term government positions will want an email that will follow them.
2. Shouldn't the government have a track of all the email sent on its servers. And we just pull all of them that went to Clinton's server and we will know what sensitive information that went across.
3. Is there any evidence that she scolded or discouraged people from sending emails to her work email?
4. If this was such a big deal, why didn't anyone bring it up earlier, until she decided to run for president?

In short I don't see where she broke the law. The person who may had broke the law is the person who sent classified information to her email address.
But I agree with the FBI she did have a bad judgement using personal email for work... However she is a politician not a IT expert.

If it was an average guy who did this... Chances are they may had lost their job, but not had criminal activity put on him.

You should be well aware, that the movie industry is opposed to that, and make sure this isn't allowed in their license.

It is supposably to stop illegal sharing of the data. But I think it is more to keep the honest honest approach. Having a file you obtained legally sitting on your PC ready to be copied and shared with your friend who would share it with their friend...

While currently the person would actually have to go to the darknet to get the pirated version.
