Slackers' Network Stolen

We're down again, but this time it's not our fault.

At some time today (after 10:30am 12:30pm, broad daylight!) someone broke into Salim's house and stole a bunch of stuff. As of right now, I don't have many details, but some of what was taken was The only saving grace is that, thanks to our use of dilapidated hardware, they apparently didn't think the PoS machine in the corner was worth taking. So we still have Alexandria, which means they didn't steal our irreplaceable data (AFS and the backups of IMAP, and the Kerberos DB (we have an offsite backup of this, but it'd be useless if the principals were compromised). And thanks to the recent IMAP debacle, we know the backups are complete (though they may have stolen everything before last night's backup finished)

Salim & Anna (who'd just moved in :(:( ) were away for the weekend, but we know that the system was there around 10:30am 12:30pm PDT today. If any of you can verify a later time, they'd appreciate it for the police report.

Most importantly, Sprout appears to be unharmed.

EDIT: I just realized that kprop runs every 15 minutes. Last kprop was at 12:30.
