    That just happened to one of my coworkers. That really sucks man.

    As a misguided side-joke, don't you wish you had a gun? So that you could protect yourself against that burglar who broke in when you weren't home?

    Nah -- sorry -- that's terrible. If I had the cash I'd buy you a 360 straight out.

    Wow, really sorry to hear Jeff. May swift and overly violent revenge be had by the wronged.

    Yes,... yes, I agree. It's totally unfair that sober you gets into trouble for things that drunk you did.

    If I find out who it is, I don't think there will be much left by the time you get there.

    On the upside, we're all okay, nothing super expensive was taken, and... well, the upsides end there. But yeah, the police are on their way.

    I'm kicking myself, though, because when I changed the hardware on the doors, I left the old strike plates on, because I figured that whoever had put in the old ones (the hardware was still fairly new) knew enough to not use fucking 3/4" screws to hold the deadbolt strike plate on. Guess I was wrong.

    Also, if anybody has any keen security tips for me, I made a thread in H/A.

    Does your homeowner's insurance have a theft provision? Often they do.

    Use > 3/4" screws on your deadbolt strikeplate. Otherwise, not really. It happened while you were away so the only thing you can reasonably do better is get stronger locks for everything. Maybe a dog too.

    But Sony assures us that we're lucky they don't charge us twice as much, and use lube besides.

    In other news, the PS3's backwards compatibility is a dog's breakfast.
