I hate low life pieces of shit! Just now getting done dealing with the cops after somebody broke into one of our offices last night. Des Moines keeps getting a little lower on the places I like having an office, this is starting to get ridiculous.

The office doesn't have some kind of alarm system?

Sure, but when it is in a business park there aren't a lot of people around and by the time they broke in, went through the place and left the cops weren't even there yet. I have a good camera system that tracks everything, got license plates, which mean nothing since they were stolen, and everybody involved was wearing masks. Looked as though they knew exactly what they were doing and have done this before, many, many times. Given that we are working on subleasing the space, we have to go back through all the people that had been through there, as well as the management company's people. This has apparently happened in several of their properties they are showing for subleases, so the cops are investigating if it is an inside job.

It's more of a hassle for me than anything, since we don't really have anything in that office. They got maybe $2000 in random monitors and stuff as well as some disk out of an EMC box which is completely useless since it's all old and we were going to throw it out anyways. The window they broke will probably cost me $6000 to replace and the door another $1000 or so by the time I have somebody come and install everything, though the insurance will make everything right by me. There is a snow storm that is going to be coming through tonight, so I have to find a way to deal with the large holes in the side of the building now and had to deal with the cops for almost 4 hours by the time they did printing, let me back in, let me show them the copy of the video, recorded what was missing, etc.

Eh, nobody talks about the good times really. Like this afternoon, I closed a deal, and last week, I traveled the country doing installs. It's way easier to bitch about the bad things than to talk about the good. If you have to opportunity, I would very highly recommend it.

Nope definitely can't do that, could lose my contract and go to jail and so could anyone I chose to take.

I use Uber when I travel, easier than cabs and I don't have to carry cash, which I rarely do and I like the cars better. I have a company card that gets charged and I get my black car or suv to come and get me when and where I want. May be worth looking into.

Having a good meal would totally be worth not having a job!

That's my plan, though the more the cops have been looking at it, the more that they are starting to think that it is the management company that has been taking the stuff. They run entirely EMC and we had some shelves in on trade that were just sitting in the office. Conveniently enough, the only big ticket items that were gone was the EMC. They took all of our 450GB and 600GB SAS drives as well as the controllers. I have all the serials and as soon as they "phone home" after post, EMC will be calling both the cops and me. I figure I will get a call this afternoon for that. Idiots...

Gotta love criminals, they take such enormous risks with almost zero foresight in terms of what they’ll actually do with the stolen goods….Sorry you’re the one who has to deal with their stupidity. And Uber is a great service, DC cabs are BAD NEWS.

They are crazy. A while ago I had a cab driver take me from Recher Theatre in Towson to the inner harbor and it took him like 8 minutes to get there lol. He knew when the light would turn red and when it would turn green. We were half a car past the stop line and in motion by the time it turned green every time

Turns out it was the management company that had somehow set up the whole deal. The boxes "phoned home" when the plugged them in at their corporate offices and the cops showed up about 10 minutes later last night late. Good thing, I didn't want to pay for that office any more anyway since we had a new space with a different company already and this is way easier than going through the sublease stuff. I'm glad that they are as dumb as they are, since it payed off for me in the end.

Wait so the building management company you lease your space from was behind the theft? That’s crazy! Good thing you caught the bastards, what type of legal recourse are you considering (if you don’t mind me asking)?

HA! That's awesome! (that they got caught, not that youre having to deal with it) are you taking any legal action against the company?

I’ll throw together that list during lunch today, and I’d agree with how you characterized the Synapse, it’s a nice clean pressure release sound…not the super high pitched/squeaky noise that the HKS unit makes. I’m very happy with mine, though I actually need to clean it off a bit soon, a tiny bit of oil residue is on it after a few months of blow by
