Recently I was arrested after 6 months of living in the darkroom of an
unused science lab on the UCSF Parnassus campus. The police attempted to
charge me with burglary (which the prosecuting attorney dropped) but only
the misdemeanor charges of trespassing & illegal lodging stuck.* They took
a Macbook Pro computer that had been loaned to me by Daravinne aka
Christina Olson who is the self-styled producer of 5 Minutes of Fame,
insinuating that I must have stolen it. I did not steal it; Christina Olson
gave it to me as "a long-term loan" last year when we were both working on
the Noisebridge zine project I inaugurated, ZiP. At the time the police
confiscated the Macbook, it contained all of the ZiP layouts & associated
files, plus all the InDesign, Photoshop & Illustrator work I'd done over
the last several years, plus a vast spreadsheet-slash-database in progress
containing all the info on properties & alternative housing in SF I'd been
collecting obsessively over the course of the preceding year & a half, my
journals/diaries for the past 10 years, all of my writing creative
journalistic & otherwise—the police also took my thumb drive, which was my
only (partial) backup of all this material. The police told me only
Christina Olson could reclaim the computer, since it was registered to her
name. Christina Olson & I agreed that Christina Olson would take back her
Macbook (so it could continue to sit unused in her overstuffed apartment
while she sits in front of her other, newer, fancier computer) once it was
retrieved from the police. I asked Christina Olson to let me get my files
off her Macbook before she took it back. She agreed. (I believe I have the
chat logs of this stored on the computer I'm currently borrowing in lieu of
not having a computer at all.) I recently found out that she went behind my
back & reclaimed the computer from the police like a month ago. She
casually revealed this via IM, following this revelation up with a number
of lovely statements including

*You are a pain in the ass to deal with*
*when ya stab me in the back, use my vulnerability due to police/court
custody to steal my fuckin files, you're damn right, I'm a motherfuckin
SCORPION & you haven't seen the half of it!*


*You are a failure as a human being*
*BWAHAhaha yes Your Honor!*

The C-word was made for people like this. I don't like Christina Olson. I
don't wanna be her friend or talk to her. I just want my shit back. She
told me it totals 16GB & she's not willing to let me transfer it on her
thumb drive. I recently sold a painting so have enough $ to buy a thumb
drive that will hold 16GB. I don't think she's gonna communicate with me,
though, so I'm posting this in hopes The Community may help me put some
pressure on her to get my shit back. The computer is hers—no problem—the
personal files & info on it are mine. I know she hangs out in the chat
rooms quite a bit, if that helps. Daravinne = Christina Olson.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer. Signing off for the day NOW & I'll be
back again tomorrow (but less wordy, I promise)
