Totally OT - I need some heads up (and a hug or two)

Very sorry to hear about your loss.  I am sure you are disheartened, but the
Revolution community needs your stuff, so please continue.  Perhaps get away
from work and take a couple of days to recover.

Just a couple of thoughts:  maybe you gave some of your development work to
a friend or colleague to review/test?  If so, you might be able to retrieve
some small portion of your of work there.

Also, I've seen several stories about tracking down stolen machines through
their access of the Internet -- somehow discovering the address.  Perhaps
there is some option there for you.

Finally, following the backup suggestions from several other developers,
there is Jungle Disk (  For all platforms, this service uses
Amazon S3 for amazingly cheap storage: a US$20 one time cost for the desktop
software, and beginning Nov 1 storage costs of US$0.15 (15 cents) per TB
(yes, terrabyte).  You also pay a few cents for transfer costs, but the
amount is also minimal.  I have many GBs stored there and pay one dollar a
month (EU pricing is comparable).

Again, best wishes to you.
