I keep around 700 a month at home for incidentals such as computer peripherals etc, I'm lucky to have two really good pensions, which will see me through the rest of my life in comfort, but I'd give all that up & more if a miracle happened & my wife was alive again, & no, this isn't a sob story to gain sympathy as a certain member said, just stating how I feel, I try to keep an upbeat attitude, but it's tough at times believe me, life has to go on though.

The same thing happened in the US, only it was a laptop that was stolen with thousands of military social security numbers and info on it...I don't ever know what ended up happening with it though.

The discs are password protected, I think they'll turn up though, in any large organisation there'll be juniors who make makes mistakes, it begs the question though, why was it left to a junior member of staff to post, he or she may have just been recruited.
