Now that I think of it, in the fall 2004 edition of the 2600 there was a
really good article about laptop security.
It focused on putting together a 'phone home' programme that would send
a heartbeat to a remote server every 15 minutes when plugged into a
network. There might have been something in the article about getting
data off it remotely too.
Very handy for this type of theft.
I'll make a scan of it if anyone is interested.
