Accidentally deleted files


I accidentally deleted a bunch of files with rm -Rf

Is there any way I can recover them? I was not logged in as root (fortunately...)

Thanks...

Robin (yeah, the dumbass)

Also, root or not, if you were using ext3, recovery isn't really an option (unfortunately) -- J.W.
