My home in Great Wyrley was burgled some time between lunch time and 10
The following were taken:
A Lenovo/IBM X41 running Ubuntu Linux (and my life). Serial No. L3AA6CZ,
Part No. US2F8UK It has the outline of a removed Ubuntu sticker on the lid.
An HP laptop with about a 15" screen and a Telford & Wrekin asset-number
or security sticker (my wife's work PC, running Win XP) in a smart black
A Lenovo ThinkPad T61 (?), my brand new work machine running Windows
XP, SQL Server and Visual Studio - I'm sorry! It had an E.ON asset
number sticker on the front-let of the lid. Both this and the Ubuntu
ThinkPad were in a new, black Targus backpack There were also a couple
of memory sticks in the front pocket of the bag.
A white Apple iBook G4, with worn-off key caps on the often used letters
and a hairline crack in the right hand side bezel of the screen. The
battery won't hold charge. This is my daughter's university machine, so
it has OS X, OpenOffice.org, architectural models and a vast collection
of music. Because she lived in a dodgy area of Nottingham it has UV pen
markings in a couple of places and SmartWater DNA paint of her
Nottingham Postcode NG7 2BX on the front edge, which looks like clear
nail varnish. Serial No. is UV4251BRR73
A white Apple iMac G5 iSight with a faulty 'SuperDrive' Serial No.
W8547CGUTAQ. It contains my son's final year video project for his Fine
Art degree. He has no backup of the last week of his work
If you hear or see anything of this equipment then please let PC 5704
Goodwin at Watling Street Police Station on 08453 302010 know.
My PC security tip - use ancient, crappy PCs with CRTs. Thieves don't go
