sorry to hear that. hope you get it back.
Hope You can get it back soon!
Friggin thieves. I had my wallet stolen last week, so whenever I hear about thieves now, I am in a mood to punch 'dem thieves in the friggin' mouth.
Got robbed 2 years back. Went out for about 15min or so, to get some snacks; came back to find all my stuff gone. Desktop, laptop, mobile, my newly bought LED TV; they even took the mini fridge.
Word has been put out. Also, management has been informed. I expect some news soon. I can only pray it is good news.
Is that the only thing missing?
If it was crunching the entire time, you might be able to check and see when it last returned results. Should give you an idea of when it went. Also, see if it started returning results again?

I think that must be the first time in WCG history that all the teams got the same points two days in a row!

Back over 3 million!
Great job Team!
Thanks Norton for the updates!
Due to a crazy series of events, I am posting this on my very own LappyTop!!
Turns out the perps didn't want to talk to me. I can hardly blame them. They knew who my roommate was and approached him at the Bus stop out front. They wanted money from him, he said no. So, word went out, by me mentioning to a few key people, and a few within earshot, that the Police would have a report tomorrow.
Then roomy was approached by another guy, today,said to meet with someone at the Mall of America. He goes there, spends a few minutes waiting around and was approached by another guy, asking for money. He said no, where's the computer? Dude said he'd have to go to Burnsville Mall to get it.
He buses out there, see's a group watching him and one followed him to the food court. he wanted $50 for the computer. Roomy says he'll drop the report for $25. If he wants $50, the report stays and the cops will follow. Dude took the $25.
About a half an hour ago he walks up to me, outside, with my computer in a plastic bag. Silly dumb asses couldn't get past my password.
So, Captain @Norton , I'm back!
BTW, Great Job Team!!
I will be in Winona, MN on Thursday night. I have no idea if the Motel I'll be in will have WiFi or, if my Hotspot will work down there (Clear Wireless was bought out by Sprint Mobile, so the map of coverage is gone and I don't know for sure.) I expect that it will only be a temporary setback, if at all. I will let you know, by phone, if there is any hitches in the plan.
I am finally getting my Holiday!! Wed. I pack up and Thursday morning I am getting on my bike and riding down to Winona. 114 miles, door to door. With a few rest stops, and lunch, I think it should take around 12 hours to get there. If all goes by plan, I should be in my room by 8-8:30pm Thursday night . I will then head back to town, here, Tuesday and then, back to work that Thursday, the 7th, a week later.
So, yea, I am a little bit excited x2!! Got my sweet ass computer back AND I am headed out to sweet-ass Winona, in a couple days! Life is good!
I just dumped the work I had, most of it past due, and reloaded my Queue. It took six days but, I got it back. And, I didn't even have to bust any heads!
Damn I'm good!
Good night Team TPU, got a long day tomorrow! See you all after work!
Amazing to hear @Arjai, crazy story indeed. Glad it's back and that you get to get away for a few days!
Enjoy the break, glad you're back!
I am slightly confused about @Arjai's story.
But what's important is that You got Your laptop back! Cheers, mate!
I live in a Men's Shelter with about 400 other guys. Perhaps that may shed some light? Or, was it "perps?" that's a slang word for shithead thief, and or criminal.
Nice work Team TPU!!
Thanks!! After a 13 hour day at work, this makes my day!!
19th Tonight!! Awesome!
Great work team, looking great!
Glad you're back @Arjai, I love the light you bring to the team especially the Numbers thread
Yeah, I remember this. I am just a bit confused about all those "meetings" and... money?
Did You actually have to pay them to get Your laptop back?
Should we start a "Get a Kensington lock for Arjai" fund?
Exploding dye pack?
