Sadly, I thought you had migrated BEO to tron already and I did not 
transfer any BEO files from tempest.

It is gone.  When you cancel a server they format the drives first thing.

I think all home directories (even root's) are world readable on 
debian-based distro's.

So what have we lost?  The whole browser archive?  The downloadable 
browser files themselves?

Do we have an offsite backup of these somewhere, perhaps, hopefully, on 
the UK mirror you mentioned?
