im so sorry man... the bright side is that they didn't take your dog
Home Insurance? I know that your data still is lost but hey, at least the thought of new equipment will make it a tad better.
Geeze Orrin, sorry to hear. :(
Sorry to hear mate, had the same on the previous flat. They took a couple of laptops and some random stuff but thankfully they skipped the photo equipment. The insurance paid back and got a new macbook but lost plenty data.
I am not saying that is the right thing, but I heard of 'a friend' who fabricated a couple of extra receipts and ended up better off.
next time put a mac laptop shell by your pc computer. seriously it works. i had my house broken in once. I own a dell (lol fat computer) and mac laptop. they didn't even touch the pc.
makes me wanna get a online backup space.
That sucks...house broken into?
- Yeah. Well house walked into when back door left open - Only had a ten minute window too...orrinward2
- Missus left the house, and realised when she got to the main road (<10 mins) that she'd left the door unlocked. Came back and everything had gone.orrinward2
- Must have staked out the place in advance...ukit2
- back and everything had gone. Fucking crazy!orrinward2
- sounds like an inside job...
- no isurance cover then?cruddlebub
- insurance = inside job.
did the house catch on fire after that?
jk. new dog = pitbullteh
- inside job. The window of opportunity is way too tight.sherm
... And my awesome XBMC setup with Sickbeard, Headphones, CouchPotato and DropBox watched NZB folder so I can make my home machine download things when I add things on the train or at work...
Sorry to hear orrinward, be glad that they did not steal your lil' dog...
Any laptop donations are welcome? If anyone's generous I'd also take a nice DSLR. Never had one but I'll milk the sympathy for all it's worth!

That's shit dude. Happened to me, I couldn't care for the hardware, it's just all the work and personal stuff, that they'll just wipe, is what pissed me off.
Just happened to me, last week they crowbarred open the back door. Computer was in room they broke into luckily only took PS3 and watches, etc. sorry to hear you lost your work that would be nasty. My dog was locked in the room they broke into. I still am paranoid a week later to leave my house unattended. Sick feeling.
@goldie Same really. They just had to find all my backup drives too. As I do the odd bit of laptop work and buy/sell I have loads of them. They took 4 (3 of which were heavily customised with both hardware and software) and left 7 that were just not in plain sight in my at-home office.
The one drawer they took things from is where I keep my backups that aren't in plain sight. It's my girlfriend's laptop that pisses me off the most as that had all our pictures and our 'Home Movies' on. If anything I hope they leak so we can at least get them back!
can't tell ya how many times i've been burgled. shittiest, most violated feeling every time. like your home is no longer yours...
sux losing your backups man, my condolences!
wait orrinward, you have dropbox on it? if you contact the police and have them contact dropbox, they might be able to trace the ip next time the computer is turned on and dropbox connects. you have a chance of recovering it!
fuck, that sucks.
