I *think* that's correct, but will let someone who knows comment. I just
wanted to mention that renter's insurance is awfully inexpensive, on the
order of a couple hundred dollars a year, and it covers you against a
variety of things.

Also, if any of this stuff was work related, maybe your company will
reimburse you. If not, losses like this may be tax deductible, at least in
the US.
