My principal computer has just decided to trash its hard disk and everything on it. Fortunately, since I have experienced this before, I am pretty regular about backups. So I haven't lost much.
However, it takes a long time to put all those programs back, not least because it's two years or more since I last installed them and can't remember where all the disks are.
So there will be a delay.
If you sent me Email in the last 24 hours, assume it's lost forever and resend.
