    Hopefully this will be the last of my paranoid postings as I got a passive monitor a few days ago. It has been clean for 72 hours now, which can't be a bad sign.

    On to the craziness.

    First I found this small stain on my top sheet. No idea where it came from but it isn't washed in because this is a brand new sheet. Any thoughts?

    After being unable to shake that off I tore apart my bed and launched into a full hour exploration of the frame. Don't think I found anything besides stuff like this photo 2

    Despite turning up really not much I just can't shake the feeling that they are hanging around somewhere. With any luck I can put this to bed soon.

    Also I think this is an accurate description of how I feel a lot:

    Hi,

    Although I am viewing on an iPhone nothing there looks faecal or bedbug related to me.

    Mr. Cain,

    Thanks for the prompt reply! It is actually your BBAlert Passive that is help keeping me sane right now as well, so I guess I owe you two thank yous.

    As I said I think I am getting jumpy over more and more trivial things because I am slowly eliminating every possible sign of bedbugs in my place. The list must be almost through. (At least I hope so.)

    PS iphone, huh? How are you liking iOS5? As someone who probably gets 40,000 calls a day you must love the notification center.

    I am a ludite on a 3GS but it's stable. London traffic means I can check in between jobs and often gave 10+ windows I scroll through. An iPad would be nice but I would rather a processor upgrade to my old HP TC1100 which was awesome for hand writing recognition.

    Glad to hear it's helping you focus on confirming signs, hopefully you will see the logic and discipline of the product.

    David

    Yeah, some of those old tablet computers were great. I had a roomate who had a toshiba something or other that was awesome to doodle on.

    Since I brought up the monitor I was hoping you could give me a bit of advice. When I got mine I wasn't real sure about where to place it and slapped it on the back of frame facing the wall, by my head (current location)

    Now I am thinking that might not be the best place for it and am considering moving it to a place I have heard other people discuss, the middle of the top slat of my bed. My only thought is that the slats on my bed are very narrow, would that be a problem? (proposed location)

    Thank you as always for taking your time to respond to these small matters. Long live your 3gs!
