Had my laptop stolen on Sunday. Besides the massive inconvenience of having to get a new one and get everything back to normal, I feel violated. I keep all kinds of things on my laptop, none of which are criminal or anything but many which are personal and private. I can only hope that the thief is dumb and uses up the battery time (they didn't get the recharger) before they find a printer or a disk. Luckily I had backed everything up on Saturday so I'm feeling pretty good about that. Still, not sure if I like to control my thoughts and writings, not someone else.

Good thing you got the backups. I've never had anything stolen, but I've had things crash and lose things like pictures of kids.

You can set up a hard drive password in the bios, so that you can't even boot the thing wthout the password.

What price is inconvenience versus privacy, eh?
