roll-back / restore old journal in ext3

I have Mandrake 9.1 ppc and accidentally erased my entire home folder on the linux over the network. I know, it's probably far beyond help, but I'll ask anyway. Is there any way to recover, rollback, undelete the old journal. I know the inodes have been erased, since it is ext3 so that method is useless. Please advise.

Depending on what you did immediately afterward there may be
hope. If you immediately remounted the filesystem read only
so as to avoid overwriting anything.

This might help you.

Unfortunately I have to say don't get your hopes up.
I hope you have some recent backups and good luck.
