Spies stole my laptop. Possibly.

I've bought a tin-foil hat.

I was burgled last month. Nothing dramatic, they broke a window,  stole a laptop. They didn't make any mess (suspiciously neat as it happens, I'd almost claim they vacuumed the place), and it was more of an inconvenience than anything else.

The police came round and dusted for fingerprints - nothing - no blood where they'd crashed the window, no greasy fingerprints on anything. They may have worn gloves (professional thieves, in Stockwell?)

And then I realised that a couple of other things were missing -  principally two other (old, not used) laptops (resale value < £50), and rather bizarrely, and most annoyingly, my v. expensive Logitech wireless keyboard.

At about the same time the Snowden story was unfolding, and I was tweeting and posting occasionally on the subject.

Oh, and I live less than a mile from MI6, the UK's foreign intelligence service (007).

So here's my tin foil hat theory - spies stole my laptops, and more than that, they stole my keyboard as they have backdoor key-logging software installed on popular wireless keyboards. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Over and out - heading off-grid for a while...
