So I recently noticed that namecoins are actually worth more than fractions of a cent.  Like $7 now.  A while back my computer crashed and I recovered what I could, and didn't have any good backups.  Apparently my namecoin folder wasn't important enough for me to try to find/recover.  Plus at the time of the crash, I think namecoins were still under a penny each, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to how many I had... that combined with a couple miners that were doing merged mining through slush's pool, I wasn't paying enough attention to the fortune I was accumulating. Smiley
 
So yeah, I'm a little peeved at myself that I "lost" $3500.  While I'm 99% certain they're gone forever, I do have a few hard drives from around the time it crashed, so maybe I backed it up on some other drive.  But I'm only giving myself a 1% of this.

I am sure there are a lot of folks who accidentally lost their namecoins.

That is why the current 7 million in circulation is likely much less.
