Doesn't have to give shit away. I transfer it to my computer & hand it
back. Takes a couple minutes. "Social capital" blah blah doesn't touch me,
she doesn't hang out @ NB so that's irrelevant. Fact is she stabbed me in
the back & is withholding years of work. If you think that's cool you're
probably one of the chat room trolls who are the reason I don't spend any
time in chat rooms. I will exert every possible route of influence to try
to get that back, it's irreplaceable & pretty much all I've lived for
through a lot of tribulations over the past several years. Note what I said
about having a partial data backup which was also seized by police.
Recently after my lawyer made a call I walked out to Bag & Tag at Kansas &
Marin, spent 2 hours wrangling w/ them & went home with nothing. All BS.
I'm not getting anything back. Don't try to put lipstick on this pig.
You're defending a dweeb control freak who's got some power issue she's
exercising by loaning something & then taking it back sadistically, with my
work on it.
