[TriLUG] stollen computer (fwd)

Yep, I got the possible insurance joke, but would like to tell everyone that
there is a certain security in having a TV set that is too heavy for one
theif to carry off :-) If there was a wink or smile given, I missed it. To
further elaborate, a Sony 36" Vega can't even be put on just any TV stand.
It has to be able to support a LOT of weight. My wife has decided that just
because we're having our couch reupholstered, she is going to put new carpet
in and have the walls painted, and yep, you guessed it--all this in the room
where an elephant of a TV set resides. So I'm going to have to hire some
guys from the WWF to move it to get her new carpet put down and so the
painters can get behind it.
Just wish I could have afforded the $20,000 thin flat-screen that just hangs
on the wall. But it has the problem that all the wires to it have to be put
INSIDE the wall. So to steal that sucker, a thief would have to chop holes
in your wall to disconnect it. :-))
P.S. I have a suggestion for an informal program, why not have a program
discussing the various Websites which are useful for Linux users? or a
program to give everyone a chance to ask technical questions? Some of the
best programs don't even have to have a formal program. At present I'm
having to reload Linux because I upgraded a lot of parts of my PC. I use
Mandrake 8.0, so I'm assuming that just like RedHat I can just reload
Mandrake 8.0 over the old copy, or can I?? If not, what should I do??
