    Security / lost and found stickers

    Hi all,

    Glad to see the forum up again.

    After a bit of a scare when we thought we migh have lost a company laptop, I got to thinking about identifying stickers. Maybe they have our company name on them, return instructions. Tamper proof, of course.

    Anyone have a recomendation? For laptops, LCD projectors, and digital cameras.

    Sadly, I don't suppose anyone who steals a laptop would be much deterred by a sticker, however 'tamper-proof'...

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by cbaldrey on 02-May-06 15:49. Found a sample - at the bottom.)</P>Not sure about the cameras and projectors, but I think I heard about software that can be loaded onto the laptops (or towers for that matter) that would essential phone home when requested / connected to the internet. The software, wouldn't be noticable within the operating system.

    It may have been a embedded GPS Chip - I don't remember, and google is failing me at the moment! ARGH!!

    Well, the tamper-proof part of it is supposed to leave a "tattoo" on the case to mak it harder to pawn it.

    Really, I mostly want somethin with a phone number that can be called if it happens to fall into the "roght" hands.
