Some day I will get back the precious data on my laptop, but today is not that day. Mostly what is not backed up is: latest version of talk, latest version of typechecker code, and latest Austin and Ursula font hacking. I have slightly older versions of all three, but meh. Redoing any amount of work is annoying.
I reckon that tomorrow probably won't be the day either, unless I can magically find someone with a laptop with a serial ATA drive or somethin'. Fortunately I think I can get by editing what I have in the cluster or whatever.
