Thanks guys, for the kind support! I've been happy with my reward of getting back to my normal hardware development duties, but I'm sure we'll be able to put that beer money to good use!
rebelpilot, I'm afraid the recovered photos are missing much of the month of August. Sorry about that! Please restore any stragglers from that month from the backup that you have if possible, or give me PM with a description of the photo (type, name, size, nature of image) and I'll dig around in the other corrupted backups I have and see if I can find it.
