Ah, yes, I remember.I take it I've also already told you howThe work was not stolen intentionally, my laptop with my work was stolen.
If I was in place of a professional software developer I would at least have automatic daily backups to some home server, and probably I would get me a private git on github as well to have something offsite too.
I can't even imagine how someone can not backup serious work for months. I don't seriously program a lot, but even when I'm just spending some 20 hours or so on an essay I start backing it up to some offsite location every hour at least, because I wouldn't want to do work twice.
This is already a longer post than I wanted, but maybe you now understand better why I've just gotten a bad/unprofessional impression of you.
