[the weather today is |fecking brilliant]

I just heard from the police.

They got a match on the DNA from the blood they found in my room, and it's no one we know.

I am going to enshrine that box of thumbtacks.

Holy shit, that is AWESOME. Did anything come of the laptop on eBay?

Yes, it is fairly unusual and pleasing.

The laptop turned out not to be mine. (One of the specs was wrong, I discovered later.)

My brain must be slowing down with age. Because it seriously took me 30 minutes to figure out why you weren't saying, "So, thankfully, I wasn't burgled by anybody I know."

Now let's hope they can find the person, and recover some of your stuff...

I'm hoping for the former, but not holding out much for the latter. It's rare that stuff gets recovered, and I'd rather let go of my emotional attachment to it quickly.

That's wonderful news, but I do find a little disturbing that they just had DNA on file for people, criminals or otherwise.

But yay!

I think an icon of tdj's provides an appropriate response here.

They should have to sit on a large thumbtack for days, the little freelance socialists.
