I have learned alot from this incident and it's very sad that I came home to it. I am grateful in a way that I did come home to it and wasnt sleeping when this happened because my life could have been at risk. However, it's one of those moments that I wish I had taser or something next to my bed and was home to stop the situation. The laptop was my high-school graduation gift (2 years old) so it was outdated anyways... but money is hard to come by in college... luckily, I have a wonderful family: my grandmother donated 500, my grandfather donated 500, and my parents paid the rest for me... i love them alot and will continue to thank them daily for their support. Had it not been for them, I wouldnt have been able to make this post... In fact, id be in my bed and staring at the ceiling wondering, "Why me?"
@ Mouser: I managed to find all but the LineByter files, thankfully. It sucks that LineByter wasnt backed up before this but the thief didnt take my external HDD that held several backups of all my important information... Gives me an excuse to develop a LineByter 2.0 with new features =P
@ zridling: It sounds like alot of anger and frustration would have developed from that story... Im curious to know what happened after this... did you replace it? how did it get better? or did it get better at all?
@ lanux128: Thank you for your support!
Who knows? Maybe, just maybe, i'll write an article on DC about this incident and provide a guide about things to prevent loss of data in this situation... Maybe there already is one... I'll check into it =P
