A friend of mine and I were discussing the possibilities of the cell phone boards from adafruit.  Most project ideas involved taxidermied squirrels.

Stop looking into the GODTOILETTM.

Can't.  You'd look too, if you could.

Yup

Yeah, well, I have obtained the materials I need for spending Saturday night doing that shit.

Our house got burgled, so that's kind of shit.
It looks like they ransacked the bedroom/hall areas, piled everything on a blanket ready to carry it out, then walked into the lounge and realised the house is full of cameras and door sensors (turned off due to a cleaner visiting today). They seem to have freaked out, broken a camera off the wall and stolen it, stolen one MacBook (among a pile of other MacBooks and more expensive electronics) and bolted.

No images captured due to disabled system, but we do have a timeline of their movements through doors for all the good it does us. I don't imagine we'll ever see the MacBook or the security camera again.

Fantastically, our cleaner then turned up, presumed we were slobs and unransacked the house, polishing all flat surfaces and likely destroying all forensic evidence.

Shit, sorry to hear that man.

I would have said its an inside job if it wasn't so believably silly.

I'm sorry, that's a really shitty thing to have happened, but your cleaner sounds like an earnest and adorable hard worker.

That's pretty crap, though it clearly could have been much worse. I assume your police are about as incompetent as ours so I'd keep your eye on ebay and such because you never know your luck.

Hells, even a quick run round the local pawnshops might just get you somewhere.

A friend's shop got burgled at the start of the week and I was surprised at how little effort was put in so if you really give a shit about any of your gear, you may have to put in the legwork yourself.

The cleaner also took photos before cleaning, in case we complained about the work because it was so bad to start with, so we got some kind of idea of what was messed with. Despite the obvious not noticing something was amiss with the open front door and turned-over house, I am impressed that she thought we left it like that and STILL cleaned it.

Definitely keeping an eye on sales, gave police serial numbers and will share those with relevant stores. Thinking of configuring a few of my devices to listen out for the MAC address of the missing device, in case it's still trying to pair with our WiFi access point when we drive past the house it's in, if it's local.

I'm almost disappointed you've not installed some kind of self destruct device.

What kind of future is this?

Hope you get your shit back.

I doubt the cleaning lady was in on it, but it does seem fortuitous they chose the day she would be there and that the camera was turned off for their robbery.  I assume you've considered the possibility you were surveilled before the crime?

I slept through a 5.2 earthquake and about 400 aftershocks. I'm surprised the Golden State waited a week to welcome me.

Also, that's bollocks, Paes. I hope you can track your shit down.

This is a brilliant idea, I'd never have thought of that. At some point I'll have to set up the "ring home" functionality on the phone and laptop to send on its location.

Grade confirmed today as a 2:1.  I'm OK with that.

I had to look up the UK grading system, but nice work!
