Yepp, it shows you and the counter-part at the worst. If you can
stand it there and then, better get the other one hooked, and fast!

Personally I take pride in *not* peeping around for priovacy
reasons, even though as the domain admin I can if I wanted to. I do
however sweep the user- and profile folders for non-work related
jpeg's, avi's, mpeg's, mov's, iso's, cue's, exe's and big zips,
which all are signs of files that might not be entirely
workrelated, and as such take up unnecessary hd-space. We're not
cramped at the moment, and don't run any quotas (because of
politics), but it's a good idea not to let things creep up on you
