Just a quick group update to apologise for the lack of progress really :-/ I'm still as confident as I can be that the data is safe, but I'm at the mercy of what sounds like an overstretched IT guy on the other side of the Atlantic.
I have discovered that some other RW countries (Holland and Germany) have gone through a similar exercise, hence my confidence - but short of harassing people, it's just a case of being patient unfortunately.
There are 70 of you on my mailing list, but if you know of anyone else who would like to recover their data, please feel free to pass on my details, and I can send them similarly uninspiring updates until I get my hands on the data. And of course, if you've lost the will to continue, please let me know if you want me to stop.
Hope you're all running well,

I wonder if it's the cost of entering it. I done it five times now (my local Race for Life is really well organised and great fun) but now my two daughters want to run it with me. The entry cost for the three of us would be £45 - that's a lot for a fun run even for such a good cause.
On top of that there's finding the sponsorship and I feel I'm 'taxing' my family and friends for the Race for Life every year. I'm sure they've all heaved a sigh of relief knowing I'm not doing it this year. If the kids run it with me people feel obliged to sponsor!
Instead I ran a charity 10k last week which cost £10 to enter, the associated 2.5k was £5 - again for a cancer charity - and they let men do it too.
