So yeah title pretty much says it all, I left my laptop either on the train or at the train station (station that I had come from)

Anyway I'm not here to just whine, I just want to know whether you guys think that I'll get it back. I phoned up lost and found and they said if it gets handed in, they won't be able to tell by Monday (strangely) So I have to phone then.

Do you think someone might have handed it in or do you think that I shouldn't have that much faith in the human race, and somebody has stolen it??

Pure, pure stupidity by me in the poll. I don't know how to change or remove it!
#3
I wouldn't be getting my hopes up on getting it back. I'd start looking in pawn shops.

50/50 I guess. I've lost a few wallets, my passport, mobile phones, ipod. Some stuff I got back, other stuff I didn't. Hopefully someone will hand it in but I wouldn't hold your breath, lot of people with sticky fingers.

Edit' Just saw the poll answers,

Cheers for the feedback..it's certainly more useful than the poll. (although its a pretty close one!)

So anyway, if (touch wood) it is stolen/nicked, my laptop is password protected. Do any of you guys know how easy it would be for someone to still access all my stuff? Not that I really have that much to hide! I don't want people using all my stuff.
#9
If you have someone with a bit of technical knowledge getting past the windows password is fairly easy. Still, it might turn up yet so don't worry too much.
#10
Why the f*** are you here asking us about it when you could be at the train station asking whether it's been handed in?

Well, knowing the average crook, they won't be able to access your stuff.
Now if they know a little something on computers, they can find a way to completely reformat it. Your stuff should still be protected though.

But on the safe side, I'd definitely talk to the bank about a new card, new pin, any information given on the laptop regarding your financial situation.
#12
I have man, I said in my first post, I rang up and they said (for some weird reason) that they can't let me know until Monday. I'll be phoning then

Really depends on who stole it (if it was stolen). If it's a druggie or similar chances are they'll either just sell it straight on or format the drive and sell it on. Someone else might very well decide to have a look at your stuff and if they ahve any real knowledge of computers it's easy as hell to get to your stuff.

If it was stolen it's probably some addict though so I'd say it's more likely they'll just sell it on.

I haven't heard of anyone who has lost something that expensive having it returned. I wouldn't get your hopes up.

It's okay, an MI6 agent will pick it up and drop it on another train somewhere, it'll turn up eventually.
