    Re: How Do You Handle Being Robbed

    How does one without a job go about aquiring such expensive merchandise? If you don't commute that far, ride a bike, if that doesn't work use public transportation. There are plenty of people who never had any of the the stuff that was stolen from you, and they aren't wallowing in despair. Life isn't about having flashy toys. You got robbed, not assaulted or murderd. Does the value of those objects outweigh your life? If you had to choose which would you pick? Great, you chose life, and here you are.

    Check your local ghettos, pawnshops, ebay, and other online selling sites to see if you might be lucky enough to run into a listing with your tech stuff. Also, try putting out a reward.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    and if the guy jacked your PC, chances are one of two things happened:

    1) It got cannibalized for parts, which is what I'd do

    2) They wiped your drive and re-installed windows, which no password can stop.

    Don't assume that just because they didn't bother to take the monitor means that they can't use the computer. I myself have 4 monitors, Two I use for my Dualscreen set up, and the other two I have as back ups when the two I use die.

    yes, thgis is probably true. and i feel your pain, sort of. my PC PWNd hard, but it just uip and died. sort of the same principal, kinda. now im stuck with a crappy old dell with windows ME which also SUCKS!!!!

    yes, passwords can easily be avoided by a skilled person. if i had a nice thing again, i would lock it up. like when i get a nice notebook, i think ill put it in a metal lock box or somethin...

    just take it easy for a while. drink a couple (if possible) kick back and try to ease the pain for now. sounds like its about all you can do for now. or clobber them with a baseball bat (good one, negi sensei)

    Re: How Do You Handle Being Robbed

    i'm not sure how to help you with this, the feeling of violation that one gets when robbed is hard to discribe. I've been robbed at gun point i can relate a little. But i tend to be the upbeat type so i wrote my experiance as a Plus. at least he didnt shoot me, and i have my health...Had to go jump through hoops to redo all my cards...pain in the butt, almost made me wish he had shot me instead standing in line at the DMV...but you either get a handle on yourself or you let who ever robbed you control you fears...i choose to control my fears and will never let someone else tell me what to be afraid of...btw if that punk wasnt packing i would have kicked his a@@, but bullets talk and i listen...
    Don't Panic
