My disks for Adobe Illustrator went walkabout 4 months ago. I sent emails to everyone, no accusations, just “I have a new computer, need the disks”. Nothing happened. Someone left the lab a month later. Another set of emails, and some frantic searching (yes it is possible that it was filled with the umpteen CD’s that have raw data from a machine that won’t write to an external hard disk – fuck Toshiba).
Then , lo… a miracle occurred, and the disks reappeared on a general lab table. No note. No nothing. I’m glad to have ’em back.
