1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    It's time to sharpen your knife collection while your roommate is around. BTW, even those little cheap fire safes can be screwed down to something from the inside, making them very hard to steal.

    It's not the $100, it's the thought that the person you have to live with, or one of the friends you've trusted to be in your room alone would actually steal money from you. I'd be pissed if it were $5, just on principle. I hate shit like this, it just reminds me just how scum-sucking people can be. Property theft is probably outranked only by physical assault on the scumminess scale. I'd definitely set up the roomie as some kind of test. If he's got some kind of addiction that would make him stupid enough to steal from his roomie, he'd probably be stupid and desperate enough do it again.

    Yeah, I'm gonna try that.

    The fact that someone was rifling my shit would bother me more than losing the $100.

    You really need a sting operation. This is what web cams were designed for.

    I am not sure I understand what you are trying to get out of this post. Are you simply ranting? If so, sorry your money got stolen.

    If you are trying to spur discussion, I don't see how this could go on for more than one post. Everyone is going to tell you it sucks you got robbed and next time "be more careful." The End. Or in this case Repeat x 14

    Learn some basic tradecraft. Losing $100 sucks, but in all honesty, you're blowing this out of proportion. If losing $100 meant you don't eat for the next month, this might be a bigger deal. If your roommate's a decent guy, it shouldn't be hard to ask him to keep a closer watch on your room. If not, you should be looking for a new roommate.

    Tradecraft is important. Make sure you watch your six. At all times.

    What did your roomate say about it, exactly?

    My freshman year, I went halves on a VCR with my roomate. One day, I came home, and the VCR was missing. I freaked out. Asked the guys next door, talked to my RA, etc. My roomate came home, and I was like "our VCR got stolen!" and he said "I pawned it [for some weed money]. I'll pay you back, I swear." People do stupid things.

    Living alone would solve these problems.

    What's the fun in that, though?

    Plus, usually hard to do in the dorms, unless it's your 2nd or 3rd year.

    Little did we know that Connie would learn the ins and outs of theft quite well.
