Apparently things seem to get lost when getting shipped to Tennessee! (http://www.medicaldaily.com/news/20101127/4243/missing-radioactive-rods-recovered-by-fedex.htm)

What's going on over there???

Mike

Still nothing here. I just got back from a week in Florida. I was hoping to find it magically appear the day before I left, but no luck. It didn't come while I was away either.
I wonder if it showed up at Y-12 in Oak Ridge, TN. :blink:

Y-12?? Is that a modern code for Area 51??

Have the Ghouls from "Plan 9 from outer space" finally stricken?
Instead og bodysnatchers we have mailsnatchers?

Wait! It must be..... Plan 10!

Not at all! Y-12 exists on paper. There are directional signs for it on the roads. It employs several thousand people in the area.
It was originally where they did uranium enrichment for the Manhattan Project. Since then, they've gone into stockpile management, disarmament, and several other things.

Indeed it was. We're still holding out hope that the USPS can come through as well!

By the way, where's the European camera???

We'll see Steve and compare the performance between Royal Mail and Posten which is the remnant of Royal No. Mail, they've been split up, but the old traditions still exist. I for one is convinced that Royal mail did an extra effort because there was questions asked with the right kind of data, from abroad. As I understand, they still wrongfully think that Isle of Wight is but a small part of England...... Time they started treat ya'll with respect!

When did you send it?

I posted it to Hartington Hall which was the address on the list on the 1st of November.


Oops..forgot to say I've moved, but luckily I'm going there tomorrow!

Did you go there?


Have you got a reference number you can track it with?

Somewhere I have a receipt which is proof of posting but I don't think it has a tracking number.

The US camera has an official case number opened with the USPS. So, hopefully this garners some action!

How? I thought you said you had no record of it. It would be great if they could locate it.
My local post office damn sure isn't doing anything about it. Most of them are stereotypical state employees.

My wife called the USPS national 800 number and beat her way through mindless prompts until she got a living being. He took down all of the information and said we'd get a call in about 2 days. Who knows if they will get anywhere (or even if they'll try), but what the heck - it's worth a try!

Maybe now the proper authorities are on the case :D

Stealing mail is a serious offence, even today, so if they have hint that someone, somewhere stole a Very Valuable Camera, I expect the same agents that got Dillinger and MG kelly are on the case!

If those same agents are still alive, they are likely VERY old and VERY slow... great candidates for employment by the government!
