As I said, everything I had was gone.

I contacted the sysadmin, and she said the most recent backup was about
13 days old. This is not good, but it could be worse. I did manage to
save a couple of files, most notably the FAQs for all of the lists, but
once the files are restored, I'll have about 48 hours or so of rebuilding
to do (lots of scripts lost).

Look at that, the prick even stole my .signature.

We think we know who it is, we might even be able to get him.

The bad part is, as I feared, I did lose all of the reseach for my thesis.


I am going to get myself a really stiff drink now and try to wash the
adrenelin out of my system. This is most UN-FUN.
