hope you find it or are able to replace it quickly. when you do, take the bike inside at night. its better to lose a little space in the apartment than to lose your ride. also, get a u bar lock, cable locks are only good for locking the wheels in combination with a u bar locking the frame.
brad, you should hand out the how to use a bike lock article you wrote every year in oakland and southside. maybe do a welcome to college special edition of urban velo as a promo each year. then its a deductible advertising expense!
