Engraving Redsmetz Jr. into it (or the last 4 of his SSN) will prevent someone from selling the laptop after it gets stolen. Just because his name is in it, doesn't mean it won't get stolen.
It's also a good practice to write your name in the inside cover of all textbooks with permanent marker.
Good adivce. But as expensive as textbooks are, I don't really worry about them. Compared to a computer, it's chump change.
The first 2 years of law school, I studied almost exclusively in the library. I'd leave my bag, books, mouse and cables when I'd go to the bathroom. Getting them stolen woulda been a drag, but not a tragedy.
I always carried the laptop itself and my wallet with me to the bathroom.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
