I was being interviewed a little while ago by John Batchelor for his show (The John Batchelor Show), talking — as we have a few times already — about the Clinton e-mail scandal. John asked me about recovery of deleted e-mails on the near-mythical clintonemail.com server; I pointed out that — in my opinion — […]

No, we still don’t know where the Clinton server is, was, has been [UPDATED]

  [UPDATE 03/12/15 1657 MDT] A “Democratic source” is just now saying that the server was bought with personal funds and was for President Clinton’s office in the Chappaqua house. This sounds like an attempt to fend off any subpoena request based on it having been purchased and/or housed at taxpayer expense. In short, I […]

Over a period of nearly 16 years — since mid-1999 — I have been retained repeatedly as a consulting and/or testifying expert in litigation involving information technology (IT). Roughly half of my cases involved troubled or failed IT projects involving two or more parties; roughly half are intellectual property disputes (patent, trade secret, copyright); and […]

Physical security of the Clinton e-mail sever

March 10, 2015 | By | 1 Comment

I’ve raised in prior posts (here and here) the issue of physical security of the clintonemail.com e-mal server, which is why were it was located and how it was set up matters. Last night, Mitch LaKind — who has experience setting up secure military e-mail servers — wrote me about the detailed issues surrounding Clinton’s approach. I’ll […]

[UPDATE 03/10/15 0826 MDT] Besides coming to the conclusion (for now, at least) that Confluence Networks is a dead-end, I also have a new post up in which someone with actual government experience setting up secure e-mail servers weighs in on the physical security of the Clinton e-mail server. [END UPDATE] In my prior post […]

[update: 03/09/15 1824 MDT] At this point, I consider Confluence Networks to be a dead-end with regards to the Clinton e-mails. Of course, it still remains a fascinating topic in and of itself, one I may get back to at some point. but not right now. [update: 03/06/15 0756 MST] I have a new article […]

Millions of Americans spend roughly $50 billion a year on lottery tickets, although the chances of a big payout are, well, very slim (see this great infographic — and, yes, just keep scrolling down). But the upside is so great — millions, tens of millions, even hundreds of millions of dollars — that over 50% of […]
