Hey guys, I posted this exact thread in another forum. I really need any help it anyone can supply any. Thanks in advance. Hey all, This morning was truly hell. Some of you may not remember, but I posted a thread on how someone attempted to break in while one of my roommates were home. To make a long story short, she (as well as the neighbors) phoned the police and the kids were caught before they could do any real harm and were arrested one block away. I believe that was last Wednesday or so, I don't really remember, but it hasn't exactly been a week. Anyway- this morning at exactly 8:45 I woke up to a loud 'BAM!!!' and heard some shuffling and it was over. I thought it was one of my roommates having a rough morning getting to school so I just continued laying there wondering what was wrong. I decided to get up and wander downstairs when I saw the door hanging open with the wooden frame in splinters all over the floor. They kicked the deadbolt right through the frame. I checked the room to see what was missing and immediately noticed my Macbook Pro missing along with the bag, some software discs, mouse, USB calbes, firewire cables, etc. They also stole my Nintendo Wii with about 10 games. Total for the loss was about $2700 or so. Not as much as it could have been, but I'm a bit worried about what to do with my laptop missing. I filed the police report and did the whole 9 yards anyone else would do. My insurance should cover my loss but I'm still a bit uneasy about my computer out there with my personal information on it. I doubt the thieves have any brain activity to know how to run/access my files (I don't keep ultra personal stuff on there, like CC info or bank info) but some of it is scanned blueprints and drawings of personal projects and other ****. I just don't want my personal **** out in the open. Luckily it's password protected. If they turn the laptop off it will prompt them for a password and everything may be safe and the only thing left to do would be to do a clean sweep of the system I'm guessing. I left the computer asleep, so it wouldn't prompt them right away. I finally was able to post now at work rather than after it happened for obvious reasons. Any advice on what to do? I figured this may help since I will not be able to use these programs for awhile: Usernames: Skype - marcquito8318 AIM - LKornBizkit AIM - firstname.lastname@example.org Those automatically come up as soon as the computer is turned on and is connected to the internet. Is there a way to view the IP address of a computer that is online if you see my s/n appear? Is this possible to do? Would it help me relocate the laptop? What are my chances? Also, here's for info about the laptop if anyone sees it on craigslist or anything: MacBookPro15/2.4/2X1GB/200-5400/256VRAM Part Number: MB133LL/A Serial number: W88109KHYJX Thanks, guys. Also, is there any way to flag the serial number as being stolen?? Thanks, again! ::edit:: the laptop was purchased LAST Feb/March (I don't remember) so it's not even a year old.
