I know its my own fault for not sorting insurance out before i moved in. Oh well i'll come back stronger :D

on a side note, anyone know if its possible to get an xbox banned from Live? I have the serial numeber etc, i dont see why someone should profit from my misfortune.

Back bedroom window, its a rented property and it was the only room with wooden window frames. They had obvioulsy watched me move all my gear in and then watched to see when i left. Saw me in my training gear and took the opportunity! sub human scum!

I personally think it was people in my building, as there was no way they could have taken all that without someone seeing it. Next the window where they broke in was a door to a shared hallway and stairs to the flats above. so it was all to easy to pass things out the window and up the stairs without being seen.

This is the only time I condone violence, catch the ****ers and **** them up so badly that their future children would feel it! You kinda get it when people take something because they are hungry or really desperate, but coming into my house and violating my privacy and life like that, beware if I catch you!

Have you iCloud setup on your laptop? Might be worth a shot checking out the "Find my Mac" feature.

No it was a work one, i was studying for my Lion exam so i didnt have any AppleIDs setup on it, first thing i thought of.

I did think of calling Microsoft to get the thing blocked but thought they might not care that it was stolen, and i doubt the police would go to such lengths to retreive it.

Thats terrible so sorry to hear that. Makes me sick to think that people do this on a daily basis without caring what they are doing to peoples lives. Scum of the earth.

I have tracking software on all of my devices, iphone ipad etc. I am looking to get CCTV installed at home, they are relatively cheap these days and they record to Hard-drive.

So no tracking software on Macbook or Dell Laptop?

If I was you if you I would knock on my neighbors doors see if they know anything. If your any good at reading peoples body language you might have a chance of working out if they were involved or know anything.

if they watched you move in ... and broke in when you left ... and knew about the windows ect.... its either your landlord, a friend or someone leaving close by ..... this is why I am getting a dog when i live in a house ... and cameras.... and my gun will close and the ammo in my pocket....

That's just terrible. I hope the cops catch whoever did it. I was robbed about three years ago and the cops never even had a clue.

You should check out craigslist in your area to see if anyone is trying to sell your stuff.

Sorry guys been away for a few days
Still no updates on the case or any contact from the police :(

My uncle is a police officer who is checking into any updates for me but nothing as of yet.

Unfortunatley no tracking software on my devices although im sure i setup iCloud et on my ipod but it isnt showing.

I dont hold any hope of getting anything back as they couldnt find any prints around the window where they got it, they did get some prints of the box for my xbox but they are more than likely going to be mine.

Just logged into iCloud and found i could lock and erase my ipod which is new to me. Put a pin code on it so when it does eventually connect to the internet it should lock and erase and show a message....heres hoping! Edited by mcloum

Get a big ol' dog and install tracking software on anything and everything.
Bad times when that happens to you man. Hope it does get resolved somehow.
