      Rikki Don’t Lose That Number
    You don’t wanna call nobody else
    Send it off in a letter to yourself…♫

    Words and music by Walter Becker and  Donald Fagen, recorded by Steely Dan.

    Just having returned from presenting at the American Bar Association’s Annual meeting in NYC and the Canadian Bar Association’s annual meeting in Quebec City, it occurred to me that I had been carrying around cameras, a computer, cell phone etc with no record of any serial numbers in the event that any one of them ‘disappeared’.

    The thought came  to me that I could capture all these serial numbers and place them in a email that I emailed to my GoogleMail account. If I needed to reference any of these, it would be a fairly simple matter to find an internet cafe and pull up the proper serial number for the police (and also pull up the insurer’s telephone number) if any of them became lost.

    For that matter, an email could contain other important information as well…that could be handy when you are miles and miles from home…if your wallet was lost or stolen.  Health care numbers, credit card contact numbers etc….sort of an emergency checklist….who to contact and how….

    After all, you don’t want to lose those numbers….and the last thing you want to do is start calling people at home trying to find them.  Send them off in an email to yourself!
