Recovering file on Ext3 filesystem.

With a serious error at the command line I have managed to delete everything valuable in my home directory.

Nothing is backed up and as far as I can tell is lost. Is there anything I can do? Some stuff I really need back like wages forms and manuals for my job. I can't believe what an idiot I am.

I am using the Ext 3 file system.

the linux documentation project has a "how-to"
on partition-rescue.
and there is a "user guide" there also on "backing up your data"

</edit> I found this in the LQ Wiki may help also
