Robbed and lost all my contacts from Tech ED Convergence and MVP days

I know that many people don't see the front page and blogs, so sorry for cross posting here.

Basically after returning from Tech Ed Barcelona, I was robbed, and amoungst everything, I have lost all the contacts that I made in Moscow at the MVP open days, Munich at Convergence, and in Barcelona at Tech ED IT.

So if you met me at one of those places, and I had your contact, I have certainly now lost it. Also if I sent you an email or you sent me an email since about the end of August, then I have probably lost it. Please if we met, could you please contact me either through a PM here, or email me at community@go-live.us or community@go-live.cz . Obviously over three major events you collect a lot of contact information, and there is no way I can remember the names and email addresses of those I met.

Thanks to all.
  • Sorry to hear that David. Did the police ever found the person that robbed you?

    Well firstly we were robbed at lunch time, someone there called the police for us ont he emergency number, but just gotr a message saying that the police were closed for lunch, please call back at 2pm. NO I AM NOT JOKING  Angry When the police arrived I told them we had not touched anything, they asked why, and I said well so you can get evidence or what ever. They said, Oh we are not going to try to catch the theives, so it doesn't matter. At least they were honest.

    The next day we found my wifes cell phone under the passanger seat, and had the receptionist at the hotel call the police to tell them that we now had a telephone number if they needed to contact us. The police would not even pretend to write down the number, they said even if our stuff turned up or was found, they would not bother calling us. We would have to go into the police station on a regular basis to ask if anything was ever found.

    This annoyed me the most, since all the valuable stuff I lost was "free" stuff, i.e. business cards, papers documents, so its very likely they ere just dumped ont he beach somewhere.

    PS if ever you are in France, and plan to get robbed, don't do it at lunch time.

    If I stay in Europe I live in Calvados/Normandy and the local "Gendarmerie" opening hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30 to 12:00. So you better get not robbed outside the office hours

    Hey Walter, if it hadn't happend o me, I would not believe it. I must say, the police closing is an odd thing from me!
