For the few, the proud, the brave, the... deaf, who haven't heard me complain about it yet, it's been an exciting week at work so far. Overnight on Monday, a thief or thieves broke into the library and stole more than $10K worth of laptops, leaving a trail of broken glass and blood behind them on their adventure through the building.

Three comments to the thieves:

(1) Don't bother coming back. We don't have any more technology left that's worth stealing. ;-)
(2) Bleed on my requests, will ya? Not on my shift. Be prepared to be... deregistered.
(3) I hope you get found, and get sentenced. More than likely to poorly-enforced probation, especially if you are (quite probably) a young offender.

In the realm of good news, one of the laptops was recovered today. we don't know where, or in what condition, but that can't be bad news. :-)

To break into our building, they smashed a window in one of our doors with their fists. In honour of this, I've decided to call the scars from the resulting injury the "steal-mata", after the stigmata, or marks resembling those of the crucified Christ.

Sacrilcious, I know. But so very funny. :-D


  1. Wow...who steals from a library!! Some peoples children!! I hope they find them Brandon. You should don a cap, cape and monicle and be Sherlock Ulhman...figure it all out :)

  2. Seriously. I've been watching a lot of Law and Order recently. Let's get these punks, Brandon.

  3. So, if there's blood, there's DNA, no?
