Hack A Day posted an article about making sure your data was backed up and used our home / workshop fire as an example on how to do things right. We lost no important code because our data is backed up in the cloud. After that post we got many emails offering condolences and well wishes on starting over. A few people donated money, some donated tools, and some companies stepped up and offered to send us some amazing hardware. ISO-TIP was the first of those companies to contact us. They emailed us and asked if we could make use of a portable soldering iron. Being Iron-less we replied with a resounding YES!
