Most of us have at least one USB memory stick in our possession at any one time. And most of us will have lost at least one of them too. They either disappear mysteriously or are left in the USB port of a computer in some far away land where nobody can return it, because after all it is just a generic USB stick.
To help improve the admittedly slim chance of its return, I always add a simple text file in the root of the USB stick called ‘if found’. In this file I put my contact details so at least this way there is some hope that it will be returned:
Please contact me, Zak Mensah at tribehut @ gmail.com to return this stick that I have clearly forgotten.
