This is both a FYL and a YDI...FYL because your house got broken into and your laptop got stolen...but YDI (losing your pictures, not the break it) for waiting years to get with the 21st century and back up your pictures. Anything couldve happened to lose them, not just a break in, like a comp crash or something
LOL #7! Same thing happened to me. Except they broke into my office building and stole several laptops. Yes, I had not backed up my photographs either. I learned my lesson and make physical (CD or DVD) backup every time I load new pictures onto it. Also back up the entire laptop to an external hard drive every day, and keep it separate from the laptop. Office has beefed up security as well.
that sucks! with my main computer I had bought the cd's to do it and I kept putting it off. well my computer decided to just shut off and NEVER go back on, no matter what I do... so I know how you feel. I had about 7 years of family birthday and holiday parties on it. Not to mention half of a novel I was writing...
