Birthday Break-In

Hi! You may know me as Landon or Lyz's spouse or that weird game developer named Kinak.

You may know my birthday is August 31st. You may also know I love ramen.

So, we were out celebrating my birthday with some delicious ramen, when someone broke into our house in broad daylight. Thankfully, nobody was hurt, the cats didn't get out, and the burglars didn't damage anything other than the back door.

However, they wandered off with four laptops (including my work laptop, Lyz's work laptop, Lyz's home laptop, and a junky old laptop they probably regret stealing). They also grabbed some loose electronics that we don't have proof of ownership for, like a Wii U controller, some DSs, and an old Nook. And the whole new-door, new-locks thing.

A lot went right with this, because it could have been devestating. We have back-ups and insurance and the police got some fingerprints, so there's a non-zero chance they'll catch these people. So it could be way worse.

But the insurance doesn't cover some of the small stuff and the deductable is $1,000. If you have a little extra money you'd like to go to a good cause, I really like being able to work on Metroplexity and Twilight Heroes and freelancing. It sounds kind of dumb, but I don't really know what else to do with myself.

I set the goal at a $1,000, which covers the premium to get us back our laptops. If people are amazing and we get more, that'll help with all the little things that aren't covered (like, say, better locks that sound like a really good idea right now). And, if we dare dream, getting actually new computers instead of replacements of the old ones we wanted to swap out anyway.

Thanks for your support or well-wishes or pestering your friends.

tl;dr: I got -4 laptops for my birthday, could use some help with the insurance premium.

I've had my garage broken into (twice) and my car stolen. It sucks, and dealing with insurance isn't much fun either. Hope recovery is smooth and swift.
