Hi Rodney,

There really is no solution. Laptops are a very hot item these days.
I use an alarm pad with a very obnoxious alarm.

It doesn't stop the person from cutting the cable lock cable and
running off with it, but the alarm is loud enough that they are not
going to be able to get away without being noticed.

I use my laptops in libraries & Starbucks quite a bit, and
unfortunately, both of those places are prime targets for laptop

The major thing I worry about these days is loss of data. I backup
VERY regularly and about 85% of my data is kept encrypted all the
time using true crypt or custom databases I have written.

When your 2 laptops were stolen, were they in similar positions?
