Classic.
Alarm goes off. Cops not attend

Probably never know how much taken
 
It seems that the only professionals here were the thieves... Incompetent policing
Police today confirmed that an alarm went off at the raided premises in the early hours of Friday morning, but they decided it did not need immediate investigation.

Having a bad day. Bad technical week.
Unfinished projects. Unupdated software. A half clean study with crap everywhere.

And +Google+​ playing the fool. Stuff not appearing in my streams when it should.

Maybe Monday everything will be sorted.

Day 4 of the dig.  Found the time and space (job market sucks) to try this disk archeology.

Unfortunately it means a lot of restarts.  Finally managing to extract some meaningful error messages from the system log.  Apparently to get my recognised I had anything recognised as usb disk tried to be mounted as MTP.  Even when you aren't using it, MTP is a stupid idea that screws things up.

So comment that out, but of course I can either attempt restarting all the udev/systemd/init stuff manually in the correct order, using the correct syntax or I can power off and power on.

Big switch coming.  Repeatedly.

5pm update
xhci (aka usb 3) disabled in BIOS. Protip remember to switch usb keyboard from usb3 port after you do that.
Still no mass storage via usb as 3.16 has some sort of issues, so compiling a newer kernel (4.0 rc6) using 
export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=9 && sudo make xconfig && sudo make deb-pkg LOCALVERSION=-tqft2
which apparently is the way to do it. I could recompile this 3.16 but then am reduced to playing with flags I don't understand. Or I could go back a couple of versions. Hopefully Linus has got this stuff sorted.
If this kernel works, then maybe usb storage will work, there have been lots of fixes.  I may or may not have to play with the IDE drive jumper settings.  
These are old drives sitting in a pile, there is maybe one file I want.  But until I can see the contents, I won't know.

Did I mention I am unimpressed.

+Ian simpson Yes.  Very big.  You'd think they'd pay better security.
