a brief update

After consultation with the insurance folks, it's not worth putting in a claim, so I guess Uncle Sam's $1200 is going into the buy-me-a-laptop fund.

Wonderful dude was just here and replaced the window for $75. Sunset Glass in Pasadena. I can highly recommend them! And he was over an hour early. Took him about 20 minutes to get the old glass out and cut and seat the new pane.

So that's that. I changed all my passwords for my accounts and set a password with the bank, so nobody can access my stuff. I also signed on with Lifelock for a year's monitoring of my credit. They were actually recommended to us by both one of the cops who came last night and my parents' insurance guy, who has handled their accounts for years and is a good dude. So money well spent, I suppose.

Sorry to hear your laptop got stolen, and your house broken into, that sucks!

Hope you get a swish new laptop, and the cops catch the bastards that did it.

Glad the glass has been replaced. :) And I still hope they find those assholes.

*sigh* I'm really sorry - that all sucks pond water. I'm glad the glass replacement went well. I'm with Rich - I hope they find the assholes.
