He might be Surfing from his Work place, Andy OR his laptop. But the issue isnt that. Its the Frustation. We work so hard to earn and save every penny. We forego that nice Shirt that we see in the shop so that we can save for a car or a House and when something like this happens, it shakes you up. I can understand Wasabe cos my parents have gone through it when I was around 7-8. Though for me it was missing my Cartoon Shows for a month till we got a new TV , i can now understand what my parents went through cos they took a hell lot of other things,too. Anyway, we are with u. Let us know if we can help in any way. Tintin

Hey Andy, That was a humourous post.... Does that also mean that you have enough resilience to overcome such misfortunes.
Wasabe, Did u lose too much of worthy stuff. I feel deeply moved by ur plight. Would lodging a complaint with local police really help in retrieving your stolen goods. If it was in my country I would not have ever thought of getting them back....system sucks. -EB. [This message has been edited by Eager Beaver (edited June 19, 2001).]

Wasabe, that's sad. I hope you get your stuff back.
My friends visited Italy recently and stayed in a youth hostel. They lost their passports, camera and camcorders there. All because one of them made the mistake of leaving the door unlocked while visiting the bathroom (which is normally outside the room in these kind of hostels) when others were asleep. The strangest part of the story follows .... They go to the police station to complain - the inspector there hands over a printed form without a word : Goods Stolen ( tick the appropriate box ) ------------ 1. Camera
Normal SLR Digital : : 2. Video camera : : etc. That's when these guys realised that they have no hope ! EB, 'your' country has company
