Dam that sucks, hopefully if they're a member on here & honest they'll get it back to you. Did you try to contact the hotel? Maybe someone found it and brought it to the front desk.

...my laptop that also went missing ( lenovo i3 laptop )... .

Wtf.  A mix up with a PCB I can see happening as an accident, but a laptop would be much harder to explain. Theft really pisses me off.

Hopefully they both just got tossed in a box and will turn up when things get unloaded. I can't be the only one that still has a few post-FPF boxes to unpack.

Im sure it will show up, its in a box somewhere under a bunch of other stuff that hasn't been unloaded yet.  I don't think anyone here would take it, it was probably in the tech room so that limits 95% of the people at the show.  Its hiding in box still.

unless it fits in my toolbox, everything has been unloaded as far as show gear/tech gear.

As i was there until 2pm on Monday , there was no USPS box laying around.

Someone other than the show staff must of picked it up..

as for my laptop, it disappeared before the evening of Friday night.. as we needed it Saturday for streaming.

no worries for me, it was just a laptop, easy to replace, i am sure who ever took it needed it more than me, in fact, they could of probably asked and i would of given it to them ( i generally did this for the last 5+ years for gear i brought, i generally just gave it away at the end of the show.

-- I may have a Stunt Cycle PCB in my stash, if i do, i will be happy to pay it forward to replace the one that grew 4 legs and walked away.

Glad to hear! We didn't notice any theft in the console area. Hopefully Hamster just misplaced his laptop.
