      @violet.blue - don't you have to take the card out of ATMs before they'll dispense money? That's the way they work in the UK, anyway.

      My mom had her laptop stolen from a car in our driveway once, only to have it surface 6 months later in the impounded belongings from a meth lab outside of Barstow.

      We sanitized it and it was as good as new. My CD's that were also stolen were never found :(

      @caerphoto - at least here in California, at my bank, the cash comes out then the receipt and card. money first then the ATM slowly tells me, 'don't forget your card and receipt.' I think it should be the other way 'round, like you guys have it.

      I really want a copy of the FU flyer to go with this one:

      LOL. Unfortunately 2 of those laptops belonged to me, but I appreciate the effort my housemate put forth in creating these signs. I ripped off a tab and taped it to my work computer. PS if anyone is wondering, I back up my files to an external that wasn't stolen, though the owners of the other computers in our home weren't as lucky.

      A camera was stolen along with the laptops. If found... camera contains photos of me in the snow in a bikini. Must not go public. Please return the CF CARD at least!!

      I had my Nokia 9300 stolen. I saw it on Ebay and bought it back. I had my mobile number as the screensaver and the idiots photographed it and used that as the picture for sale. I got the money back from paypal. They didn't have the intelligence to format the phone, and in the log I could see the first line of text messages to each other along with mobile numbers. Reminds me of those burglar guys from ' home alone' . I didn't have the pleasure of launching a hot rion at their faces.

      Fee, I hope they gave me some credit for taking the picture!!

      Veronica, Yea, Leo asks "Did you see Veronica's picture on her Flickr Stream?" Leo and Sarah was talking about a program that makes barcodes for fliers and you snap a picture of the barcode and it loads the info to your phone.

      Maybe it'll turn out like this guy who posted pics of his tattoos from a stolen iMac to the Flickr account of the company he stole it from:

      Not affiliated to the company in any way, but at least with LoJack for Laptops you have a fighting chance. Word is that sometimes the people are still on line when the cops come. Cheap insurance?

      @TeknoDiva: Maybe you should post some of the bikini snow pics so that the thieves can use them for comparison to make sure that they've got your memory card.

      LOL, a creative means of venting anger... or perhaps a college prank.. :)
