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

Malte:

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 (jungledisk.com).  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.
