It doesn't help the OP, but for others reading this thread, there is Prey which is free & open source. It will even take a picture of the thief if your laptop has a web cam. It has a number of features and is worth checking out. Good luck to the OP.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

UPDATE: As of today, there has been an amount of more evidence of the laptops location. One of my freinds who is a net admin used a Tracerout and Arcgis(by esri) to triangulate the exact location of Ip location. Atrer cross verifing, it does seem that this is the laptops location, but police are still waiting for verification from the ISP.

Also since he was using a tracerout and other tools, he acidentaly found 7 other laptops. Slight ooops because he did not have permision to "look" at those computers, but after checking with police all 7 were reported Stolen/Missing. Another interesting thing is that one of the laptops reported stolen is from a corporation named Raytheon. The Raytheon building is not to far from where I live, about 20 miles, in Yucipa,CA. My freind has contacted the corporation and User that was asinged the laptop.

There is no doubt in my mind that the theif will be caught.

Good luck to you and sorry to hear about the invasion of privacy!

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
Date: 2009-05-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.
I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... Isn't it?!
I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!
I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb .... After I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.
The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... But I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
Thoughtfully yours,
P.S. Remember this motto ... An armed society makes for a more civil society!
