If anyone has a spare long-life (6hr plus) battery, or $3-500 bucks they want to spare, now would be a good time to let me know.
I figured it was a matter of time. Yes, I could have been more careful, and I could have been a lot more careful. I ran to the bathroom, covered it up as everyone here does, with no problem. They must have been staking me out. They got massive of files, but unless they are real computer savy, it is useless - password protected, broken, non-functional keyboard. Without the problems they couldn't have gotten $200 for it, but to replace it would be $1600 bucks for me. But, hey, I can't be choosy.
