Calling for advice: 80 Pictures for €400

I wont be long here but I really need your thoughts on that…
A few month ago my wife and I went in a photography trip to Plitvice lakes in Croatia, during the trip I had a corruption in my Lexar 1gb and lost about 80 pictures !

I tried a lot of recovery softwares but none were able to do anything, I sent the card to a friend in France and he gave it to a specialized company for review. To make a long story short they contacted him saying that can give the recovery a try but, IF they succeed, it can cost me up to €400.

So what do you think ? Should I just take a deep breath and tell them “GO FOR IT” ? What would have you done ?

Did I break the golden rule ?

Every blogger knows that, if there is only one rule for a successful blog it is “You should always interact with your readers” or “Never ignore your reader comment” or even “Make sure to answer when a comment is left on a post” etc…

Two days ago I called for all ADIDAP readers to drop me a note and I got 11 replies from 11 of you from 11 different places in the world but I didn’t reply to a single one why ?
