Re: DSLR Restore Progress

If he can afford 28k (restore price), i am sure he makes (yearly at least 2x times that) with this website.

Or DSLr is something he loves or needs, making the 28k restore price a necessary expense.

I have websites too, i make money of them, they are not close the size of this, to be honest, in case like this, if happened (which would never would, because of how everything is configured = cheaper) i wouldn't be able to pay that much money for restorations, i mean i could take a credit and pay it, but wouldn't in that case.

There are priorities.

So, how i see it, there is lots of money here, which is good of course, this is is excellent website, i enjoy it from day one, so, to be able to pay money for this, i am still thinking he is making a lot, which saying again is VERY good, and i hope this is true.

Don't you worry. More is made than you think. They have a budget of 50K+ just for people other than Karl to write news for the front page.

You are severely under-guessing.

The actual amount of cash doesn't matter, if DSLr is the only source of income, or "the plan" for his future then the 28k is a non-negotiable expense.

BOTH of your points could be correct.

It might be more that he cannot afford NOT to put the site back online, moreso than the exact cost to do so.

Those would be my exact thoughts as well.

There HAS been STRONG circumstantial evidence to support such a hypothesis.

The OTHER arguments to support 'staying the course', at least insofar as the short to medium term would be :

(1) short term - COMPLETING the data recovery, as I'd expect that they are already on the hook for a portion of the recovery costs, REGARDLESS OF RESULT or how far they may choose to go,

(2) medium term - to recoup at least the costs of the complete data recovery.

The long term analysis would of course be the loss of revenue and reputation if they did not make their best effort to recover the DSLR site completely (as per our near above posts) .

There would also be the short term self-satisfaction of 'Slaying the Fierce Monster', and the all-term knowledge gained to assist in better avoidance of a similar future meltdown (PRICELESS).

And THAT's the way it is.... (or at least the way I see it)
