I just moved last month and my house was broken in to. My file server, my Sony trinitron TV, DVDs, CDs, all of my extra HDs, memory. The fucker even stole my CD booklet with my file server backups. They also got my wallet with my credit cards. The worst part is, Insurance wasn't setup on the new house when this all happened. =\

YOU SHOULD ASK TO SEE THAT VIDEO FOOTAGE. That is impossible that it got you leaving and getting back with nothing in between.

Sucks about the theft Dan. Pretty spooky about the ghost vandal!!!
You should have replacement value on your laptop? So you may be able to snag a relatively new one.. =]

Maybe the camera was hooked up to a windows machine and went into sleep mode? ;P

ya, i just realized that when my apt. was broken into last year, they also took my snowboard with the boots and bindings (about $500), in addition to my ps2 and all my games. Its not as bad as your case but it really just makes you feel like ****..

cannot describe the feelings of loss i have my laptop was stolen in venice. i had saved up to be able to take my little boy on holiday (i am a single mum,) it was difficult to get all the cases and bags organised and keep an eye on littlun as we moved from plane to bus to taxi, and i am normally completely fastidious about my precious laptop as it has my work and all my personal photos, special ones i just took at my little girl's party.. these are irreplaceable. on top of all that, my essays for my law degree exams were on there. unbelievable i know, but that is the reason i took the laptop on holiday with me - i hadto finish them for the deadline. I had backed up the essays in rough but i got so depressed about it all i found myself unable to work for a week. the irony is i had the photos still on the memory card of my camera but decided to delete them at the last minute to make room for my holiday pictures of venice. needless to say i cant bear to look at a single one.
