Suggestions on home security hardware please!

Moving to a new house soon(ish). It's our first home in an area that will (we hope) improve over the next 10 years. The previous owners had a large dog that we're pretty sure discouraged most folks from being too ambitions about breaking in. [more inside]

Bicycle Lock Recommendations?

So I'm living Chico, a great bicycle town, and I got my treasured cruiser (over 6' long, black & cream, whitewall tires) out of storage. Bike theft and vandalism is a pretty big problem here, and I was wondering what people are using to lock their bikes in the wake of the Kryptonite lock issues. Bonus points for something that doesn't make my cruiser much heavier than it already is.

My workplace has just instituted a system wide policy that locks machines after 5 minutes of inactivity, I monitor many machines, relogging in constantly is a pain. Does anyone know of a way to generate random mouse movements every minute or so or some other way of defeating this "security"?

Is it safe to leave your house key in the lock on the inside of your door?

Is it safe to leave your house key in the lock on the inside of your door? I always do this so I know where my keys are, but I've always wondered if doing so makes it easier for the lock to be bypassed by ill-intentioned citizens. Should I store my keys somewhere else?
