    Post Security?

    Has anyone taken any security measures to protect their player. Is there anything you can do to disable the player if it is stolen?
    Maybe a program that whenever the computer is logged onto the internet it sends it's IP address to a server, that IP could be used for tracking? There are USB fingerprint scanners, and card swipers, supposedly pretty cheap. All comments welcome.

    I pay an extra fee to my insurance company so if the car is stolen, I get something to aleviate my sorrow.

    But if just the equipment is robbed, I guess I can only %/&/(%&%"$%!" them. (Happened three days back, *sigh*)...

    My next one will be bolted to the car with allen screws... Perhaps a siren underneath so if it gets "unearthed" fires... mmmmhh.

    Hey wait a minute, what about making a little device with a rechargeable battery, that when you unearth the box kicks in, sounding an audible alarm that makes very much noise if you don't unplug cables in certain order? Those cables would do nothing to the MP3 setup.
