If you registered it they will be able to find the serial number with your info
i dont think i regestered it. i have all the reciepts and conformation emails etc...
If you used a dls router...
do you have a router at home that acted as a dhcp?
if so check the logs and try to find the MAC address associated with your Mac.
Go to your "friend"'s place and check the MAC addresses.
These can't be changed, think of them as your network adapter's serial number.
you should have a serial number on your receipt...
Did you keep the black box it came in? there should be a sticker with a serial numnber on it... I'll check at home in approx 10 hours and let you know
I think the box also has the mac address, but I could be wrong.
You can check the serial number by clicking on About This Mac under the Apple menu and clicking more info.
Are you trying to say that someone you know stole your laptop and actually has the balls to let you use it??? Keep us updated and good luck!
They can be changed in software.
Click twice on the version number in the window. You can do this quickly in about 5 seconds.
The receipt (paper and email) should have the serial number. Confront him/her and contact the police. Show no mercy.
You learn something new everyday
I was taught it was stored on the adapter's ROM.
Could you please give me some pointers on changing the MAC address from software? I'm just being a curious geek
Thanks, and good luck to you, insider.
ps: NRD, great nick
The MAC address can be spoofed when networked. It CAN'T be changed on the hardware itself.
To the original poster, GOOD LUCK! Keep us posted!
if you are sure it is your set a cron job in /etc/crontab and set it to wipe out the home folders contents every month, this will teach him a lesson, you could also make it wipe the whole hdd i guess
this would mean you have like 1 month until the powerbook destorys everything and if the sucker dont give it back and your 100% sure its yours well ask for it back after the month
