    I guess my opinion on the subject is that if we as law abiding citizens are afraid of putting a few stickers on our cars to brag alittle about what we have done then the theifs have already won. I have had the computer in the jeep since July and I don't even lock the doors. I figure if they want it all they would have to do is slash the rag top (or bust a window in a normal car) and then I would be out a computer and a top besides, thats what I pay the insurance company for.

    It's a funny old world, but I'm pretty sure if my car or contents within (which most UK policies don't cover anyway) was nicked, and they found out I didn't lock my car, my insurance company probably wouldn't pay out.

    Also they give discounts on policies if you have a good alarm or immobiliser. Guess its probably not because it makes a nice sound and flashes lights when it's armed/disarmed.

    Why hand it to the thieves on a silver tray?

    Heh, "Powered by #!/usr/bin/perl", I like it! Only geeks know it's true meaning and usually have enough respect to not mess with another geek's stuff.

    Rob: I'm all for securing the system as best as possible which is why I'm going to enclose my system under the driver seat with a hinged door and a lock. Might slow someone down enough that the take off without the computer. As for alarms, in my case an alarm in a rag top jeep is useless in my mind anyway I have been around busy parking lots enough to know that when an alarm goes off everyone thinks it is annoying and doesn't even look for the car were it's going off. As for locking my doors it is faster for me to stick my fingers in the window zipper and open the door than using the key. I guess like someone else said depends on where you live to. To each his own. I know as soon as I send this I'm going to get ripped off and have to eat my words, oh well bring on the Ghz machine (House insurance covers it with no deductible!!!!)

    Good location for "geek" stickers...

    http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/stickers.html
    I've purchased a ton 'o' stuff from thinkgeek - good site - quality merchandise. As a matter of fact, I just put in another $35 order yesterday for a T-shirt and some more stickers :}

    Or... for bumper stickers you could just open up a store (for free) at http://www.cafepress.com and upload your own design...

    Hope this helps.
