    Sure, if I get one I'll let you know, but as far as I'm aware it has only happened in one suburb of Melbourne and I'm a long way away from there.

    Cheers.

    Why anyone would stick an USB stick found in a letterbox in to their computer is beyond me. I guess it's a case of curiosity and the cat. ;)
