Someone Stole My Baby

I like to think that people are generally good in this world. However, there are still some thoughtless, drugged-up or otherwise desperate people that don’t care who they hurt as long as their crime is a means to their end.

Two nights ago, I was a victim of one of these people.

Car Break In III - Inside View

Now to talk about the good found in this situation..

I’m not the type of person to ask for help, but you guys have been so amazingly supportive and expressed your willingness to help me recover from this.

Mind you, my lack of luck has caused similar theft to happen twice this year, but this time they stole my pride and joy, the only camera I use for recording my videos, my custom rigged $1000+ Panasonic HDC-TM700, along with all the memories inside.

*Click here to see the pending police report*

Your contribution will help me replace my stolen:

  • Panasonic HD Camcorder
  • XL battery
  • High Capacity SD storage card

I’d like to give a big thanks to people who have already shown their generosity that couldn’t be tracked here..

Give what you can, and I will be sure to thank you in my next video! (which should be late April) I can also send you a small token of appreciation if you’d like.

Thanks for being you. <3

  • You’re welcome Miss!
    If I had a job, I would probably have given a little more than that…
    Good luck for the future, or other English idiomatic expression I should learn, haha ^^

    I’m sorry for what happened and I regret that and I’m not in the U.S. to help you with something …. Anyway I am willing to marry you and from the money we would collect at the wedding i’l buy you a new camera ….( then we can cancel the marriage)
    With this I can help you but I have one condition: we wil do the wedding in my country (Romania) and the divorce in U.S. 😉
    Anyway I want to tell you that you’re great, I love your posts and I hope you wil keep it so forever.
    I hope to hear from you in the future (you make learning Linux easier, maybe you can help me with english spelling :))
    PS:
    Sorry for the misspellings but there is some difference between Romanian and English grammar ………..:)

  • Hi,
    Is it possible to send a donation using PayPal?

    Thank you

  • Seeing this news is saddening indeed – the expensive camcorder is one thing, but the material stored in it is the real loss here which no money could buy again. I see that you’ve reached your fund goal already – that’s great, means you can start recording new videos sooner. I’d donate, but I’m in the same situation as all your fans outside tha US – no feasible way for us to donate… Or I just don’t see one… O.o

    What bothers me now are the trolls appearing in your pledge comments. I’m shocked with comments of such retards like Daniel Hawkins and Mike Mitchell, for many reasons. First – none of them probably presented their true name nor photo, both of them never donated ANYTHING on the side, and besides all that – I can’t bear the thoughts that beings so terribly deprived of any sign of common sense share the same planet with me. 😐 I guess I don’t have to explain why are they wrong, so I’ll just say this: try not to think at all about what they wrote, it’s not worth the energy needed for forming the neural links in your brain necessary for that. 😉

    Be well and hope we’ll see you soon on the Internet! :]

    I’d rather donate money to Japan. Just sayin’.

    • So donate to Japan and let others decide what they want to do with their own money. I can’t understand why some people have so many issues with others giving money to Nixie, a dollar or two does not hurt anyone anywhere… And by the way – I’ve already gave what I could to Japan via Red Cross. Just sayin’… 😐

    انا اسف لذلك وربنا يعوضك بكاميرا اخرى مع خالص حبى

    I don’t have much money..but i think it would be a good idea if you can give us an account number where we can transfer our donation..and i think that if we all 4000+ of your followers/fans/friends..watever can even contribute one dollar per head..it will be a great thing..that way all will feel happy that they have helped..and besides that it will help in solving the problem..well if banks allow transferring such microscopic amounts electronically..BUT THEN IT’S THE EVERY SINGLE DROP OF WATER..THAT GOES TO MAKE A PACIFIC OCEAN OR FOR THAT MATTER ANY OCEAN..and this way no one would feel left out..
    Personally if i wouldnot have been in this tight financial situation as i am in n no excuses for that..i wouldnot have been scribbling words here..i would have been pouring..not just donating..
    I DON’T LIKE THE WORD DONATION..EVERYONE HERE..YOUR FANS/FOLLOWERS HERE HAS FELT THEIR LIVES CHANGED ..I MEAN FOR BETTER..NO MATTER EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT HAVE HAD BEEN FOR A FEW MINUTES ALSO..AFTER MEETING YOU..AND IN BETWEEN FRIENDS…THERE IS NOTHING CALLED DONATIONS..BUT HELPING EACH OTHER..

  • PARAKRAM

    THOSE FEELING REALLY EAGER TO DONATE FOR THE JAPAN CAUSE..BRILLIANT..WE CAN DONATE IT..40000$ (4000*10$).UNDER A NIXIE PIXEL AND HER FRIENDS BANNER..THROUGH AN ACCOUNT NUMBER CREATED BY NIXIE IN HER NAME AND SHE HAVING THE SOLE ACCESS AND CONTROL TO THAT ACCOUNT NUMBER..

  • PARAKRAM

    i tried to help..the pleding link took me to their page..did everyhting..registered and all but couldnot actually pay the money..even after furiously clickling on the “Pay using Paypal”..it didnot as k for my account number from which it wud extracted the amount I wanted to give(help) for the cause..
    i will try next time..i am sorry but well i have not helped till now and point givng excuses

    Hello Nixie,

    Your Linux tutorials have helped me no end, so I’m happy to give something back in return. Is it possible to send you £10 via PayPal (as TiriPon asks, above) or is it just the Pledgie site? I ask because I’m in the UK and I guess Pledgie is fairly US specific and I’m loathe to register for just one pledge. If there’s no alternative then, sure, I’ll register. Can’t have you going off air after all.

    Best wishes and thanks for all the help.

  • Nixie, take a look at this, it might be helpful:
