[Board] Stolen computer

Sounds good Maxi, would you like to make a motion to that effect? You are
starting to collect +1 votes on this thread and we should do so in loomio.

Q: Do we have enough information to put an upper limit on a motion?

I am currently a +0:
- I recall we have run into this situation before where we would like to be
helpful as a board but were concerned about setting a precedent.
- I am a softy and am really sad that a summer of code student has had a
poor experience at one of our events (and is suffering project delay), and
that an inspirational contributor to the website/rebranding is similarly
affected.

The last thing a motion needs is a volunteer. We need a champion to sort
out who is doing what where so we can be effective, I do not want to assume
that our treasurer will take on this responsibility (or that you will as
instigator of this email thread).
