sorry to hear ...was it a new/valuable laptop?
No, it was a 2003 HP 5190. Big, clunky. But, it had ALL my information in it, including my business records for the past two years and tons of pictures. I also enjoyed watching movies on it since I'm semi-homeless right now. Sigh.
I went to SBPD and they were really cool. They came out and took some articles out of my car to fingerprint and dusted the windows. I guess it was a pleasant experience despite the circumstance. I called 911 in LA once and they didn't show up for 3 hours. Nice change in SB.
