BRB--stolen laptop

Yup. Someone broke into our house yesterday afternoon--brick through the window n' all--and took two laptops (one very old, one work issue) and an ipod. Nothing else. So right at the moment I only have internet access here in the office, though I think I'll get a loaner work laptop soonish. In the meantime, though, I apologize for missing stuff, and it may take me a while to catch up.
  • Wow. D: That's awful!
    • thanks for the sympathy! I love my city and my neighborhood, but such things are pretty par for the course....luckily, it was a loaner laptop to begin with, and the stuff from the hard drive of my old laptop was already stored somewhere safe. (the moral is, hid your movables when you go out--robberies like this, they only take what they can see in the first 5 minutes. or, you know, get a dog!)
  • That's awful! I'm sorry that happened to you.
    • thanks for the kind words! happens all the time around here, but still yucky to think of strangers in the house. Nothing irreplaceable was taken, thank goodness!
  • So sorry, hon. ::hugs::
    • thanks, babe! At least we didn't interrupt them. I think we almost did--my son's bike was dropped out on the lawn--and that would have been worse. Luckily, all the stuff from my hard drive was stored somewhere else, so I didn't lose much that way....Still--yucky to think of people in the house :(
  • Oh, no! I'm so sorry, darling; it sucks. :(
    • thanks for the kind words, hon! Nothing irreplaceable was taken, thank goodness--though it's yucky to think about people going through the house :(
  • I'm so sorry that happened to you! Bummer.
    • thanks, hon! Nothing irreplaceable was taken, thank goodness, but it's still yucky to think of people rummaging through the house. Getting the broken window replaced today!
  • Oh, man! That sucks BIG TIME. I'm so sorry to hear this! Hope it all gets worked out soon. &hearts
    • Thanks for the kind words! Nothing irreplaceable was taken, thank goodness, but it's still yucky to think of people wandering around the house. I don't expect we'll get anything back, despite giving the police the serial numbers of stuff--but they did take fingerprints off the window--it was like CSI-Durham *g*
  • Wow - that's awful! I just don't get people sometimes...
    Hope everything gets resolved soon with minimum fuss!
    • I know--but it's basically a crime of opportunity, and much as I love my city and my neighborhood, par for the course. But nothing irreplaceable was taken--almost everything from the laptop's hard drive was fortuitously stored somewhere else--even though it's yucky to think of people wandering around the house :(

      thanks for the kind words!
