Because, as I said, the thief took everything from the hotel room,
including the receipts for the cheques. Amex wouldn't give me a refund
unless I could provide details of the serial numbers. That was the last
time I ever wasted money buying travellers cheques.


I've also bought my last travelers checks a long time ago, but for those who
continue - you could email yourself the serial numbers after purchasing
them.

Must have been a private arrangement. In 1993, ISP's were just beginning
to reach beyond the largest cities, even in the US. I am skeptical of a
claim that there was any kind of public access in Indonesia.

I've been using the Internet since 1988 but it wasn't until 1994 that I
could reach an ISP from my home without a long distance call.

I walked into a university computer science department and asked to use it.

I haven't really lived outside of large cities or college towns in the USA
but since about 1991 I never had trouble in those places getting access.
