The university I graduated from basically stole my Raspberry Pi. I submitted a Pi inside a PS1 case and a USB controller as part of my BA thesis, with the expectation that I'm going to receive it back at some point, but I've been emailing them every once in a while about it for the past like two years and they keep telling me they're gonna look for it and then nothing happens, rinse and repeat.

I'm starting to believe that I'm going to have to go there in person to recover it, but the trip there and back would be like 500 euros cause it's in the UK and I'm in Romania 🙃

Does anyone have any ideas what I could do about this?


It also seems to be impossible to get a Pi that isn't the most expensive model in Romania, for some reason, so getting a new one would cost me like 200 euros too

@hazelnot Maybe you could ask someone else in the EU to buy you one and send it to you?

@n According to someone else it's pretty much impossible to even do that because of the chip shortage

@hazelnot ah it's no prob, I have two just sitting on my shelf doing nothing
