Last weekend my office was robbed. We lost about $5k worth of stuff. Fortunately no data was taken, only hardware that can be easily, if not cheaply, replaced. Looks like the thief managed to steal the building’s master key. We’ve since had the locks changed and arranged to have an alarm installed. Curse the bastard (we’re pretty sure it was a one-man job) that made us have to go to such lengths.
We probably should have had the alarm installed from day one – we were always really paranoid to make sure the door was locked, but to quote Max Peltier (Strange Days):
The issue isn’t whether you’re paranoid, but whether you’re paranoid enough.
Clearly, we weren’t.
