When I lived in Maracaibo, the people there refused to go out if it was raining. I just put up my umbrella and walked to work. The people in the office were amazed that I made it. I told them. I'm from Houston where we never delay anything on account of rain, since it is the rainiest place in the US.

Name changed to avoid, well In fury I spelt it wrong!
Several months ago the firm I work for Decided the best way to prevent theft of PC assets in the office was to use Kingston locks. So I have come up with three ways to defeat them so far 5 if you are allowed to violence (cutting the cable & smacking the lock really hard), all they really do is get in the way. My point is they are okay if you are working on a laptop in a remote site. But at your normal desk in a locked and alarmed building, which if you are going to break in you will have sufficient tools these locks won't be an issue. All these thing do is get in the **** way

attach it to something like a hole punch, if questioned tell them people keep stealing your [hole punch] but no ones ever taken the computer.
or attach it to a trash can, if asked tell them all the files on your computer are encrypted but they are un-encrypted into temp files, i.e. when edited, and afterwards some of those temp files end up in the trash.
apart from picking the lock only one other skill required: keeping a straight face.
Ive been in offices, alarmed, when they raided they just grabbed all laptops and ran. Now if each laptop is protected by a silly cable it delays the thugs by 10 seconds for each laptop. It will cut into their volume, and most probably cut into their likelihood of even considering that office. Methinks.
