I've lost a few things. The first time was a few years ago, some large pieces stashed in plain sight in my Community College's public storage area. I knew it was at my own risk. The second time was during a christmas sale where I got everything back with the exception of one small painting of fruit. At least I have pictures.
Given my obsession with the experience of virtual reality and everyday life it was obvious I should team up with someone who comes from a similar background and has a similar sensibility about experiencing reality.
