comment Should I use a separate SQL Server instance for a database with PII?
If you can't be sure of the other database's security then another database would seem prudent. If you are doing this as a job for a client you should probably consult them.

@schroeder is probably right. He called himself from your phone so he could get your number. Kinda pathetic.

Temperature extremes may have an effect of some kind, but would be marginal.

comment Should I let a user know they have entered an unknown username or email address?
It's a pretty standard practice to send an activation link these days, if the user is legit it takes an extra minute. Of course it may not be necessary depending on your risk appetite.

comment Should I let a user know they have entered an unknown username or email address?
Why should it fail? The system should say "Thank you! A verification link will be sent to this address, we hope you enjoy our site." The system will send an account activation link to the email address if it doesn't exist, and a warning/re-activation link if it does.

Completely correct @DanNeely, if there is something of interest to an actual criminal case you'd have to give up the entire system, so it would make sense to have your camera feed on a separate system from your primary computer.

@DanNeely, that's very true, the only issue is that then you are inviting the police to subpoena your laptop if there is anything there. Better to use a cheapo USB stick you don't mind losing.
