I'm tempted to go on a little about how we already replaced the computers so in reality we don't need them, but that's not true. We never have figured out how to reload our charts, so those are still needed. All of our pictures from Tahiti to Tarawa that I thought were lost (along with the photo albums I made for them), will be recovered. I will get back a little bit of writing I had been working on, and as Jake pointed out, all of our high scores on our video games will be saved (very important). AND...I will get back the numerous email addresses and phone numbers that I had moved to the computer in order to get rid of my paper address book.
It will still be a few weeks before we can coordinate getting everything back, but it has given me a renewed trust that most people in the world are good and have good intentions.
