The real estate agents did warn me, when I put the house on the market, to try to hide as much as possible, but with repeated inspections, it is hard if not impossible to hide everything that is valuable all the time.
Anyway, immediately following one particular inspection by a potential buyer and his family, my iPod classic went missing.
This is a pain in the neck, because Apple do not make them any more, and the current crop do not have enough capacity for my music, which is largely in Apple Lossless format. To some extent, I can play some things, at lower quality, on my telephone, but it is really not the same at all, and does not work all that well with podcasts.
I think the latest versions have some sort of tracking system, so that it is easier to catch the little toerags who steal other people’s possessions.
For those who steal older the technology, perhaps an older punishment would be appropriate? Like the village stocks?
