I know that everyone is going to be sad to see this, and I can't tell you how sorry I am.  But my laptop was stolen.  All my current work--except backups--were on my laptop.  I am afraid that I will not be able to finish Seek and Destroy or Correlation, not by myself at the very least.  This is because I lost several weeks of work, and I am not persistent enough to redo everything I had previously fixed.

I promise you that THIS IS NOT THE END of my contributions to this website.  I have a small project I plan to work on, codenamed Crabcake.  It's a secret one, but I'll let you know what it is in time.  Furthermore, I will be touching up my ASM lessons to make them error-free and easier for people to get help with.  An Xlib version of Calsiah is not unreasonable either.

Also, I will heavily comment source code for Seek and Destroy and Correlation Beta, and release the source code to people on this website.  If you want to work on it, be my guest.  But unless my laptop magically returns, I am not able to continue working on them on my own.

Thank you all for understanding, and I am very sorry that it has come to this.  Runer112, Iambian, Cooliojaz, Matthias and Buckeye Dude, thank you all for the time you spent to help me, and I am sorry that you spent time and hard work giving to projects that just halted.  I can't tell you how upset that I asked for help only to have it go down the tubes

Oh my, this is terrible. Having our laptops stolen sucks, especially because you were working on a few major projects for the community (SAD and Correlation). I hope someone decides to take them as you don't seem to want to rewrite them.

I wish you good luck getting the laptop and getting back to work :D

I also await that secret project and the lessons improvement :)

Any chance you had some service running on your computer that might help track it down?

Not likely, especially since it is heavily password-protected

Hmm, to bad, they probably will reformat it, unless they are smart enough to know how to remove passwords.
If this is the case, and you are lucky enough to have a gmail account (with autologin), you might want to look at the list of ip's that have accessed it. If you are very very lucky, you might see the IP of the thief.

This is just beyond horrible... :( :(

I hope you get it back.  I know that may be highly unlikely, but best wishes anyways.  Don't feel too bad about it as it's not your fault in any shape, way or form.

I only hope you're okay after this, as I'm sure this was a horrible blow to your emotions, I personally would have gone beserk over this x.x

Actually, the thing I'm really mad / emotional about is that I wasn't thinking...I just set that laptop next to my suitcase, and I walked off with the suitcase but not the laptop!

*facepalms*

Sorry to hear, so many projects stopped because of that... :( Don't despair, I'm sure there will be lots of people who will want to help you finish them.

I would've thought that with calc84's incident people would start backuping, but oh well.

Well, that sucks.

Things like that happened to me as well, but nothing important was lost, fortunately.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

Only the executable code is stored there, not the source code...
