I have a laptop with 4 USB ports and there are 3 different dongles sticking out on the left side. I have to always keep an eye on them to make sure they don't get stolen - just like my car keys or house keys. The difference in that I can go to the local hardware store and make copies of my house keys and my car comes with a spare set of keys.

I beleive that music software companies should establish lost dongle policies and make it part of the licensing agreements so that customers know what to do when tragedy strikes. I think the biggest complaint is the huge amount of improvisation that is part of each 'lost-dongle' incident.
