Anyone that has "urgent" in their subject line is usually ignored. We're
all volunteers here, and you demand no more urgency than anyone else.
Also, is there something wrong with your 'e' and 'a' keys?

Assuming your editor was vim, it should save a copy of the file as
/path/.swp (or some variant thereof) - you can get vim to use this next
time. Other than that, there is no other means.
