[Noisebridge-discuss] To the @#$er that broke into my member shelf...

So, I built a box on my member shelf, and put a token and easily
removed lock on the box.   It was only secured by two screws, and a
cheap $1 padlock.

That said, the screws were removed, and everything //in// my member
shelf was stolen.

Okay, this goes from being "casual" to "full frontal fu#@$ery"

I can live without the physical bitcoins that I had in there,
honestly.   I had already transferred the coins off them, so they are
pretty pieces of brass w/ holographic stickers on them, and I mostly
kept them there to show others that you can carry digital currency in
a convenient physical form.

However, some of the things I had in there were projects in progress
that I would have liked to have been able to work on while at NB this
last week.    I had the Cerberus-Prox RFID relay boards, an arduino
DUE, and a few other things in there from my last visit.

I'm tired of all the ass-hattery, and this was more than just a casual
theft.  Someone had to think about it, use a screwdriver and meant to
take what was inside.

>From April forward, I'll only be visiting NoiseBridge as a guest, and
will withdraw my monthly support.   It's no longer a place I can do
work at, or leave things in, and that's not the kind of place I want
to participate at.

I'm sorry Andy, Mitch, Rachel ... I wish I could say I could look past
this kind of stuff.  There is some fundamental broken-ness.
