definitely will upgrade when the funding permits. my car got broken into on Saturday and about $700 worth of stuff got stolen plus the body damage and the driver side window got smashed.
Insurance is not covering the theft and only the damage so i'm not a happy camper!
Off topic, of course, but as Sean can tell you ... security in today's economy is becoming more of an issue than ever before. People are becoming jobless, making the prior jobless even more desperate. There is not enough "easy to purloin" stuff, any more ... it already got purloined. I suspect home invasion to go up, too. I can only hope that people arm accordingly and deal out some "in-the-home" justice. That may ease the pain of just going on, also.

jason, i sent you a PM cos its too easy to ruffle the feathers of the some of the delicate little petals in here. one thing i would urge you to consider before doing anything is be clear on why you are considering switching.

Lets all take a deep breath before the thread gets locked down, we can share 'hardline' opinions or other views in emails. We are about one click from turning this good thread into a political, social, geo centric stew. All I will say is as with anything else, a multi tiered approach / response is required, Think, use common sense, safety, security, defense, offense. the other guy will always make the choice ast to what my next response will be.
