    Watch Craigslist. eBay costs to much for them.

    If you have serial numbers for the computers, notify the local pawn shops. If they try to pawn the stuff, the police will be notified.

    I'm very sorry to hear about this. I know the feeling and it is terrible. Hopefully things work out and you can avoid any further losses. At least you are safe!

    Other way around for me. Left the player but stole the tapes. They actually found the car in an abandoned parking lot not far from my apartment.

    Sorry for the hindsight RMR, but there's a lesson to be learned here for all of us.

    This a classic example of why it's important to set up accounts and password protection on computers you own which never leave your possession. It's security for the unlikely event that they do leave your possession. At least with a password, there's a strong likelihood that a thief won't access your data.

    Ugh, I feel for Rick, yourself and Nate. But I think I have you beat.

    Found my car broken into early one morning about 4am. I had got home about 2am. A 2 hour window, they got my stereo, subs, speakers, and a rather large collection of CD's.

    As if that wasn't bad enough, as if I hand not already felt violated, a week later they came back for the car.

    Found it abandoned in the commercial district on cinder blocks.

    Car was never the same after that. Always felt different. A month later the car caught fire after a hole in the oil filter sprayed oil on the hot manifold. Traded her in shortly after.

    What's the real kicker is, my insurance company at the time dropped me after these incidents, none of which were really at fault issues..

    So because some d bags robbed me, twice, and a fluke mechanical issue, I end up having to go to a new insurance company and pay much higher rates to drive until I got my "male, 25" discount.. Lame.

    Rick, sorry my man, I hope you have renters insurance of some kind.. Keep tabs on craigslist, eBay, and local pawn shops if you can. You never know what might turn up. Hang in there, the feelings you're left with after something like this happens are terrible, to say the least.

    Thanks for the advice and well wishes. It turns out one of my roommates has renters insurance and it may cover us too... we'll see.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Wow! What an even further insult!....

    That you have terrible taste in music.

    Was it like in Seinfeld, when they stole his car? He says when he got it back the car was washed, Simonized, and the tires were balanced.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Yeah, can't see why they would drop a single male, under 25, living in an area where 2 comp claims happened within a few weeks.
