Have you found notes with text written on them? I found this Italian note:

what doeas that mean?
ABIO QUI?
COMPIOBBI
QUANTA
(:?:)

edit 19 months later: still don't be fooled by the "serial number", it is indeed complete, but not in correct order :wink:

Could be an indication about the residential place of the writer. Could be, because this Italian writing makes no sense. It is maybe on of the Italian slangs which sometimes seem like languages of their own.

Frage doch mal im italienischen Forum nach, vielleicht wissen sie dort Bescheid.

It says 'abiti qui?' meaning "do you live here?"
Then there are two names Compiobbi en Quarrata, both places in Italy, about at the location indicated :)

Very interesting looking note. Too bad it wasn't entered before? I once found a note that had "was in Kuopio" and "Hesa" (Helsinki) written on it. And I found it in Joensuu. I was the first to enter the note but I guess it Had traveled nicely from Kuopio to Helsinki into Joensuu. :P

I think it might be a good idea promoting EBT in those two cities mentioned. We'd get one active user from both of them. They would probably invite more users, then :)

I think it says Quanata, not Quarrata, but Compiobbi is a (very small?) place near Firenze, that is exactly where the point is.

I could see this note as a hit, because someone has also had this note and he told me where he had it and it travelled to me. :wink:

oh btw, Westinghouse, did you see I mixed the serial? :lol:

OK. Mystery solved! :lol: I was wondering why does it look so odd. The numbers aren't really in a row...

Just the last 1 or more than 1 number. The securitynumber is possible.

This note seems strange to me. The Serial number is made of numbers of different sizes and possibly fonts. Also all "S" notes I've seen have the digit 0 or 1 as the second digit.

I guess Androl has changed the number a bit in purpose. :wink:

It looks like it, but Quanata does not exist and Quarrata does, and it lies around the indicated spot :)
