Yes, I made it to my apartment fine.
Yes, I am jet-lagged.

No file access. No secondary e-mail account. No Lost videos.
No computer. For a month. Research on a legal pad.
Thank god I backed up my files (including my book MS!) before I left. Thank god I printed out the information most critical to my research trip.
But damn. This sucks.
