The safe is in the garage, bolted to the floor and screwed into the
studs. I'll get some steel based on the suggestions. I don't need a
lot of room, so that's not an issue.
The magnetic comment was interesting. Never thought of that.
thankfully, all my stuff is on CD's, so I think I'm fine.
I'm also thinking about putting up a sign on the safe...something
like..."The only contents in this safe are records and software.
Don't waste your time."
I'm not paranoid. We were robbed a few years back and ever since that
incident, we have taken all our valuables with us when we go away for
a few days. Now, unfortunately, we have a neighbor whose 3 teenage
sons are a curse. One has broken into our neighbor's house and is
currently on probation. Over the past few months, the neighborhood
has been vandalized (sprinklers removed, porch furniture ruined, that
sort of thing. I thought that was enough of an incentive to finally
get a safe.
