We moved our computers to the front picture window
so we can watch the world go by and the seasons change while we hang out online. I didn't think this was gonna be a big deal but the lady across the street is freaking out! She is always looking to see if we are watching <we are always watching, we are right there> and she just seems put off about the whole thing! Now I feel funny about having my cpu by the window. What do you all think? Retreat back into the house or stay put?

1. well here's my suggestion
put up a couple of hummingbird feeders and make like you're looking at the hummingbirds, that's what i do, or other bird feeders, you know whatever you got, i like hummingbird feeders because the little guys don't leave shells and poop and mess all over the place

2. Computer in full view of the street
is a bad idea, just in terms of theft prevention.

As for the old lady, she's just bummed she's not the only one peering out her window all day.

3. My only concern is
that it's a kind of advertisement to would-be thieves...

If you feel comfortable about it, don't worry about your neighbor. Sounds like she needs some screws adjusted anyway.

4. well assuming it's a desktop
they're not worth anything and they're too much trouble to move so how is it an advertisement to thieves

if it was a laptop, okay, at least they're portable even if resale value is pretty nil at this time of century

5. Depends on the model...

6. Wow!
Theft was my biggest issue too!! But I have always been paranoid and dimissed it as that. I may think twice about moving back. But it's pretty cool looking out the window.

10. to be freaked by you looking OUT your window, she is lookin IN
Three options:
Hold up funny signs and explore what her hot buttons are
Ask her why she keep looking in your window
OR...
Build a porch and get a laptop. Spring's coming; get some air! :evilgrin:
