A break-in attempt?

A quick note about this: last Friday I was home (after being sick all Thursday night), and on Saturday afternoon Dee noticed that our front window (into Jules’ room) was damaged — and it clearly looked like someone had attempted to open it with a crowbar.
We can’t say for sure when it was, but we do have a sensor light for overnight and I was totally out of it on Friday, so it was possibly during the day. Whenever it was, they damaged our windows pretty badly (but couldn’t actually get it, so winning).
As soon as we noticed, we were off to Bunnings for an alarm. Presumably it was a “convenience crime” (well, if you carry a crowbar around with you) on our otherwise quiet street; Dee reported it to the police but they didn’t really have much to tell us.

After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?
