I hate to say it, but it is true, my iPod must've jumped "ship" before I got off the plane in Vegas, last Monday 9/25. I have been posting on every site imaginable and some I didn't even know existed. Registered s/n with LostiPods.com - (I sure wish I knew about that one before I lost my iPod.), Lost and found on Craigslist Vegas and LA... Found out the plane I was on went to LA that night...they did not find it while it was still in Vegas apparently. I have had this iPod since December of '04. It is in dire need of a battery replacement. Thousands of songs loaded, many stories to tell.
