    Unhappy Another one stollen

    Any day soon I was going to photograph and upload details of my install. I got a new car a month ago, so started my project up again.
    I installed the computer on the 20th of February, and it was stollen on this Thursday (I think).

    There was nothing of value on display in the car, and to my knowledge there are only about 5 people who knew I had a computer in there (my closest friends) so I have to assume it was just a random break-in.

    On the plus side, the car hasn't been damaged much.

    Oh well. It would be back to square one but I can't really justify spending any money on it at the moment. *sigh*

    I'll just have to try and remember the good times I had in that week

    do you have recipts? if you do, and if it was a lot that was stolen, you could try to get insurance for it.

    It's not worth claiming; I've worked out the system costs less than my excess, and I would loose my no-claims bonus anyway.
    In any case, it was made mostly out of old bits and bobs that I don't have recipits for.

    it's rough, but if that happened to more theives, think how the crime rate would plummit.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, although I don't believe in hoping ill upon others.. I hope the best for you in the future.

    Where abouts are you?

    I'll keep an eye out on any of the cruise boards I use if anyone starts trying to flog computer kit that fits in a car.
