Bleach It Out

      A new hard drive eraser called bleachbit got a boost  this week as it was revealed Hillary Clinton used it to electronically shred embarassing emails.
      Good to see a product get recognition from the former First Lady.
       I did some listening today as I stopped by Colesante's to see how they are bearing up with the construction.
       Comments like "this is the worst Presidential election in my lifetime", to "Clinton frightens me, she keeps me up at night".  There was no enthusiasm for Donald Trump either and there was frustration that he won't just shut up.
        Meanwhile the latest race war between the candidates flared up again with a rehash of the Clinton crime bill and whether black youth are "super predators."

This will surely turn the race over to Trump! Not.

Gawd, just keep slinging crap and eventually some will stick, if not, keep on slinging ... this is totally a non-issue. Hell, who wouldn't want to shred anything embarrassing as soon as they realized it was embarrassing? It's called privacy and perfectly legal.

I guess some posting here can't afford that expensive process (and it is not)? Gosh - maybe they just grind it up their stuff in a blender and bury it in the backyard?

I logged on to my old DOD/Army email account at home when I was not working in the office and didn't keep anything after reading or acting on it ... no biggie.

BleachBit more info:

Two Key Problems for Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Hillary Headhunter:

Problem #1: Bleachbit is a free online tool that doesn’t do what you and others claiming it does.

Problem #2: Read the Official Bleachbit Homepage.

To enlighten yourself.

Still another example of what Bleachbit does or doesn’t do from Jonathan Zdziarski, a computer security expert.

He characterizes BleachBit as a fairly "amateur tool that doesn’t raise any red flags" adding: "It looks like the type of tool someone would run who’s conscious of cleaning old crud off their system – that is that anyone trying to cover their tracks would likely pay for and use a much more expensive, specialized data destruction tool than BleachBit."

Yet, the GOP seems to think this (yes, this finally) is the golden torpedo to sink the Election Ship: The E-2016: USS Hillary.

Sorry, guys, another dud. It ain’t gonna fly. So, what’s next? Can hardly wait to see and hear.

Assange is in the wings hiding and waiting for your Skype call. Check him out.

Were you accessing a secure network form home? I wasn't aware they allowed civilian employees to have a SIPRNET or JWICS line in their homes.
