To lock, or to only give the illusion one is locked: that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to fall lazy
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take knives and asps against the streets of troubles,
And by faking, end them? To get jacked: To be robbed;
No more; and by being robbed we say end
The heart-ache and the Soma
That messengers are heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To get jacked, to be robbed;
To be robbed: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that robbery of bike what dreams may come
When we have rode off this mortal coil,
Must give us still track stand: there's the respect

That makes calamity of so long a rookie;
For who would bear the pokes of the blog and scorns of more seasoned couriers,
The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's insulting display,
The pangs of stolen machine, the law's delay,
The insolence of a veteran bike rider and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare Brooks Saddle(one of the 19 serviceable ones he owns)? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a heavy bag,
But that the dread of something after bicycle gone,
The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
No messenger returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills on foot or in the car
Than ride to others that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make lazy of us all;
And thus the veteran hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And VeloCity Bicycle Couriers of great pride in what they do
With this regard their competition turn awry,
And lose the name of giving a rat's ass - Soft you now!
The fair Swazey! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my jovial jabs remember'd.

And Further more, I was contacted today by a nice fellow in Indianapolis whom linked over from TEAM DICKY's world famous dot com and read the story about the Laptop Round Up for the Real.  If you haven't seen this picture of me you may get a hoot, Where the Wild Bills Are...ha, ha, ha.  Like Jerry Reed says, "Anyhoo",  Bill Williams from the great state of Indiana first let me know about one laptop he had, then within hours he discovered another one that he did not know he had bringing his donation to 2 machines.  That brings toonday's total to what appears to be 9 Laptop computers donated to the new/used computer lab at the primary school in Babancourt.  This drive still has plenty of time to exceeded the classroom goal of 15 machines.  Any amount over those 15 would be great to deliver and as well would give the 30 child class back ups.

Thanks for your support and please help spread the word and stay vigilant, you never know if someone close to you has an extra machine for the cause, all you have to do is ask...
