One nice thing about having a blog is that you can continue to communicate with your clients, business partners, friends, etc., even when you cannot communicate with them through your usual means.
Case in point…
“Around 5am this morning my son (2 years old) thought the laptop looked thirsty. So, he gave it something to drink.”
Unable to access his email, address lists, and other important documents, Jeremy can still access his blog to communicate his situation. Now, probably not everyone who he may need to contact soon reads his blog, but with it he can at least make the attempt.
Good luck on your data retrieval Jeremy. I definitely understand how kids can make waking up not so much fun.
