Comment Re:Not sure Microsoft is to blame (Score 1) 259

So Microsoft should test ever version of every device that made in the last haw many years that could plug into a PC? That would be thousands of devices and take months to do. This is a well known double edged sword. Windows is open in that manufactures can make drivers but that means that manufacturers can make some bad drivers.

Saying "recorded history" to be 137 years is like sticking your hand out the window and saying we are in a record drought because it has not rained in the last 15 seconds. There is nothing to compare with those 137 years.

To use your analogy. if you flip a 120 sided coin 315,000,000 times and the last 15 comes up 120 is is not actually significant.

By the way warming does not equal wide growth rings. They could be narrow due to drought even though the temp is higher.

Found it. And here is the full quote you cherry picked from;

Comey also said that investigators had used forensic analysis to uncover "several thousand" work-related emails that were not among the group Clinton turned over to the State Department for recordkeeping purposes in 2014; however, he said, there is no evidence that those emails were hidden intentionally rather than simply having been deleted in the normal course of business or simply missed when her lawyers were sorting her emails into work and personal files.

Where does that quote come from. It is not in the linked article.

Clinton has since released the bulk of the emails sent from the private server, although watchdog groups found 160 emails missing from the public release.

is the only reference in the article to missing emails.

Comment Re:"No reasonable prosecutor" (Score 1) 1010

From the article;

"All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information, or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct, or indications of disloyalty to the United States, or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here."(emphasis mine)

Swartz downloaded 20 million documents. I would consider that "vast quantities of materials".
