Laptop stolen

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby LitomoSilver on Wed Oct 10, 2007 4:17 pm

So I won't be on for a lot longer.

I hope to god the cops find my laptop...because if I EVER find the fucker who stole my laptop, I'mma beat the shit out of the motherfucker.
A Fallen Warrior am I, as I lay upon my back, knowing as I raise my eyes to the skies, as I lose the battle of my life, that I will never see again...those that I love. Blood and tears flow gently down my face as I await the final judgment...knowing that I am forever free, yet forever damned as I close my eyes and release my breath for the final time...

From what others have told me, the thieves were watching me and waiting for a perfect opportunity to steal my laptop.

Unfortunately, I presented them a perfect opportunity to steal my laptop a couple days ago. The police have been informed of the theft, and I am still trying to get ahold of Acer so I can get my laptop's serial number.

The fuckers! I use that laptop for communication, work, play, etc. It's my frigging lifeline!

Edit: Just found the email that was used to register my laptop.

Thank the frigging lord I registered it!

Oh my gosh, I can't imagine what I'd do if my laptop was stolen. I have that LoJack software I still need to put on it to where they could track it if it was stolen.

One of my friends had hers stolen while she was in a bathroom stall at school. She had it beside her bookback and someone took it and she didn't even see them. After that story, I take mine in the stall with me and hang it on the hook on the inside of the stall door. I do that with my purse too (LADIES! Pay attention). I don't care how many funny looks I get, it won't get stolen! I've heard too many stories where people had laptops or purses with them inside the stall on the floor, and people just reach in and grab it while you're stuck on the toilet. That won't happen to me, darnit!

Best of luck in finding your laptop! Keep us updated!

Melfina...you'd better damn well have Lojack installed by the time I get back!

I don't wanna have another fellow member of RPGateway have their laptop stolen.

So PLEASE get it installed ASAP.

This goes for me too...since I'm trying to get ahold of a replacement system. I will be installing Lojack or something similar for the desktop system that I intend to purchase.

As for my laptop...I'm thankful it has a BIOS password and account password...but I know that it's worth nothing if someone knows how to reset the BIOS password.

Then I'm well and truly fucked.

I hope that doesn't happen to me...yet.

LOL @ Faith. Me too.

Did you have to buy a new one, or did you have that other one covered to where you could get a new one? =/

Buy a new one.

Or rather, lease it from Aaron's. Still, it's better than trying to go to a secondhand shop and buying a PC that has little power. I've seen PCs that are fit for Windows 98 to 2000 come with XP installed.

I am amazed that they try to foist them off on poor, unsuspecting people. And the price is ridiculous too! Over a hundred just to own the PC.

At least, from Aaron's, I'm paying 80 dollars a month...which isn't bad, in my opinion.

Got internet now. From Comcast for 53 dollars a month.

That's not bad, and hey, at least I get to be on all day nao! LOL. That, and be on the IRC channel where we usually come to!

Update!

I will have internet service installed TOMORROW! YAY!

Thank god I don't have to pay those damned technicians when they show up.

50 dollars for installation fee...(Usually a 100 dollars) and was given a deal of 19.99 for cable internets...6MB for six months.

They never told me they'd cancelled my order from last week Wednesday. I had to call the damned idiots today and ask what the hell was going on.

Found out they'd cancelled because I was a new customer, and a tech was required to come and install.

So I asked them to do it. But told 'em I couldn't afford 100 dollars of installation fee. They whacked it down to 50...and gave me the deal of 20 dollars a mo' for six months.

Good outcome, I'd say!

I've heard bad things about Comcast throttling BitTorrent traffic, what's your experience so far, if you use BitTorrent?

It's a really good idea to install Lowjack or something similar on laptops, and there are a bunch of free options out there, too. I don't know of any (I haven't picked a laptop yet) off the top of my head, but I'm sure Google will turn up some good results.

I haven't tried using P2P programs just yet.

I'll test that theory though, when I've the time. Then I'll get back to you with that...but yeah, I've heard the same things myself.

Oh, you're right Kheelan! I just don't feel safe in a bathroom at all anymore!

My laptop would be very hard for them to yank over the top of the stall door, but my purse wouldn't.

I dunno what to do now. =(
