Blog inactive due to lack of resources.

Tonight, the night of september the 8th, I came back to my house from work and found that people broke into my house and stole some goods out of it while I was working. Could have been during the morning, afternoon or night, because I'm some kind of a workoholic animal, of some sort. One of the things stolen was my laptop with all of my visual artworks since 2003 plus the programs I developed for generating images using genetic algorithms and L-Systems, my ex-professors in university have one of the last backups, so I can recover one of the last versions of my programs, but not the last improvements, nor my images or artworks, not the ones that I made and didn't posted yet, they are around 15, possibly lost forever.  Again, the most painful thing to lose are my "seeds", all the math data of every image, from where I evolve the next generation, last time I lost that was because of a disk failure, in 2007, now this.  I use to forget backups, because I'm an airhead.
I also lost pictures, videos, schedules, grades and sheets from my students, etc. and my e-mail database with all my e-mails and phone numbers since 2002, so if you are one of my contacts, bare with me until I recover all the data that I can, may be I'll ask you some data yet, if I can find you. Aside from that I'll have to be using a freaking web-mail interface for work, which I hate because I prefer an e-mail client, and will not have any history of previous e-mails, but well: being robbed sucks.

The blogs will be inactive until I can work on this somehow, and restart producing images. This is a space that I appreciate a lot and eventually, I'll be back somehow.
Until then.

I'm absolutely devastated for you! Losing hardware is one thing, but losing seeds / art is another. The hardware can be replaced (although it might be expensive). The seeds / fractals cannot :(

Keep your chin up! I'll still be here when you get back.

nothing can be done now..just be strong.You'll recover from this loss and produce even better programs.

take care man.

I'm so sorry. Having been robbed myself (some crackheads broke into my apartment several years ago), I can sympathize with how you are feeling. Try to think of it this way....maybe some even greater images or programs will come out of losing the old ones.

I'm thinking about you, and I eagerly await your return.

Aww so sorry for all this...Will wait for you to recover the losses! Miss you :-)

OMG how awful. C, I feel so badly for you. I can't even imagine how to deal with something like this.

I too will be here when you return.

Hi Cris. Haven't been visiting the blogs lately and then I find this entry of yours. Robbed! Well that Just Really Sucks! Little Fuckin' Rat Bastards! May one of your fractal aliens suck them into another dimension and devour them! Slowly!

Until then, hang in there bro, you've got friends all around the world. :-)

Deb said...

C, how are things going? Have you been able to retrieve anything?

Not much, only part of my emails and the previous version of my programs.

Thanks all of you friends for the support; will be posting very soon, thankfully, I need it. :-)
