    If you haven't heard The building Watson Engraving and Signage was attached too burned down last night, taking their shop out as well.

    Even though I don't know you personally. I know you are an avid S101'er. (My boss does actually know you though) Our thoughts are with you. I hope you can get back to business asap. That's horrible to hear.

    Wow, really sorry to hear. My single largest fear at our shop is that this place will burn up. I hope they manage to recover.

    Sorry to hear of this.

    Wishing you a quick and speedy recovery back to business.

    Take a few days and clear the cobwebs from your head, as you're gonna be spinning lotsa ideas around for a while. Write them down and take notes on everything.

    I got his email around 2:50 AM this morning. I just can't believe it. Hope is able to get a new place and is back up and running. Always one of my biggest fears.

    Hello everyone:

    Thank you for all your thoughts, at this point we are just trying to figure out where to go from here. All the equipment is gone, we managed to get the file server out before our section of the building went up in flames.

    Thank You again
    Scott Watson

    That's lucky! Reminder to all: you aren't backed up if you don't have offsite.

    I went online to check out the story in the Hamilton Spectator this morning, and although you sent me an email explaining the circumstances I didn't realiaze just how devastating the fire was.....

    If you need me for anything Scott, don't hesitate to ask.

    Sad news for sure.

    Hope your insurance gets you back in action again soon.

    Things can be replaced, people can't.
