Bitcoin theft happens.
I kept my bitcoin wallet on a laptop I use for work. Well… my office got broken into and my laptop with all of my bitcoins was stolen. I didn't back up my wallet because I didn't expect my laptop to be stolen.
So moral of the story is: back up your wallet.
Also, any good advice for protecting bitcoins in general?
