Good for you!!!!

What you just did was something like:

Build a house.
Put everything valuable that you own into it.
Disable all of the locks.
Open all of the windows and doors.

And then walk away.

Makes it really easy for the 'bad guys' to steal, or break, your stuff.
Like that guy at the University that you mentioned earlier.
