Well … we went to Kurunegala and had to wait around pretty much the whole day for the finger printing team to arrive. The police had already been there once but they’d said that they’d come back with the fingerprinting team to take a statement. Turns out that there is only one fingerprint team for 30 police stations and that team consists of only two people! So they didn’t get there till we were almost ready to leave and of course, once they’d dusted for prints it turned out that the thieves had worn gloves :p I guess while the police are less-than-efficient over here, the thieves are becoming extra-efficient since the lot who robbed our Colombo house wore gloves too. Anyway, the upshot was that the police will not have any way to catch the criminals … not that they would have with fingerprints but at least then they could have fingered – pun intended <g> – anybody who was brought in on suspicion. Now the only thing that can happen is if they catch them with the goods and that’s really a long shot …

Obviously I didn’t get any coding done yesterday since we didn’t get back till past 8 o’clock at night. Maybe today I could do the release of Blog 6.0 Beta 3 and get on with PostMan but then again, maybe not :p I still am not in the mood for that discussion of Raymond E. Feist’s writing that I was going to get into – not that I’m really sure that anybody is that interested in it anyway :p – but probably some time soon since I’ve been reading a lot of his works in succession and I like to discuss things when they are fresh in my mind …
