Yesterday I discovered a laptop computer (not mine) in my car, and the most likely place that it would have stowed away is WCCS7.

If you are missing a laptop, identify it and I will get it to you. (There is nothing obvious on the HDD to indicate owner.)

A bizarre combination of my son's driving school, my work, and Diet Mt. Dew. :brow:

If its a IBM Thinkpad, 486sx with a expanding keyboard and a missing rear panel than its Oddcomps. I gave it to him, not sure how it'd make it into your car, but just thinking.

Oddcomp was the second person I thought of, as we did spend some time at WCSS7. The first person I thought of was the guy to whom I was loaning my t-wagon. Both said it wasn't theirs, but offered to make a home for it...

If it is not password protected, start it up, open the e-mail and see who the e-mails are sent to. It is kind of an invasion of privatcy, but if it help to get the laptop back to it's owner, what the heck. I still can believe that someone by now hasn't noticed that their laptop is missing.

Well, after spending the last 26 years in computers, and owning a computer prior to the IBM PC, I am fairly well versed in things computer. BTW, did I mention that I programmed for several decades in Mainframe Assembler, and have coded in various microprocessor assembly languages? Oh, and I broke through XP Pro's security in order to rescue data files. (I learned a LOT about breaking XP from that task. Very easy...)

I have a pretty good idea how to snoop for information, and I did so. At the risk of giving away information to ID the laptop, it has almost nothing on it, not even a setup web-browser/email. Word is not installed; a couple of text files identify the user as a tween/teen, probably male. The OS is "licensed" to an indeterminant name.

It's in most stores in the area, at least the ones that have shelf space to spare. Should have asked me, as I probably had 2-3 half-cases in my car at WCSS7.

I was first introduced to it 8-9 years ago, when a coworker from the Minneapolis office told us about it and "smuggled" some back to us. I remember one trip where he lugged his HUGE suitcase into the office and opened it to reveal like 8 cases of Diet Mt. Dew.

The laptop was buried under about 2 cases-worth of crushed empties. (My "empties" box tipped over.)

I make no claims to being smart... just that I have lots of experience and know my way around PCs and operating systems. If you could convince a chimp not to spend so much time throwing its poop it could be just as "smart" as I am. :lol:

Well, the car has been parked in my backyard since WCSS7, since my son is taking driving school and driving Christine (with a 3AT) and I don't have enough room out front to park both at the moment. So, unless my Labaradors mugged a boy, I don't think that it got to me since WCSS7.

As far as where the body(bodies) is(are) hidden, why don't you come and check out my 10 thickly wooded acres... :brow:
