like the title says.....he took it without my permission. As it turns out, it would seem (so i've been told), they need a warrant to take my electronic info....lots of pic's of someone riding a train on it....he said he'll give it back in 20 days...sans railroad pic's. Any thoughts???

this doesn't apply to your situation (sorry) but a tip for anyone that has a cop or anyone else delete your pictures from your camera... they're recoverable! there's plenty of different kinds of recovery software out there that will help you get your pictures back. of course the cops don't know this, they think it's just 'gone' like everyone else. ill try and suggest some good software when i have more time...

oh yeah, but no matter what you do, DONT USE THE MEMORY CARD AGAIN TILL YOU RECOVER THE PICTURES. using the card will take pictures over your old ones, making it hard to impossible to recover...

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
