If the subject is us, we have more backups: we have printed version of the spreadsheet and we are also keeping it on our mailbox. If it's GLBSE, while we also believe the probability is low, our collection of claims deals with exactly this kind of scenario.

The in-foundry production is still going on and the status shown from the foundry updates is active. As explained here before:
The foundry processes many orders that are magnitudes larger than that of ASICMINER or any other ASIC mining device projects. If companies at our size are allowed to fight dirty against each other within their production house, big players like cellphone microprocessor producers will make much more serious mess. So we don't think it's possible.
