Mental note to self...

...always double-check your regular expressions. Especially if there's a "rm -rf" somewhere on the command line.

I just accidentally destroyed several megabytes worth of data from a Wiki, and of course the restore system fails at the same time. Gngh.

Well, luckily I am so paranoid I actually have double -backups of all important data.


Yeah Baby,

Double backups! It's the only way to go. I move data from home to work nightly (almost) just so that if one computer gets trashed, the other will have a complete backup.

Then, I burn everything to CD when I get a chance.

I've been advising my friends for the last couple of years to organize everything they care about into "CD Sized Folders."

PS - and dispite the above - I still lose things sometimes - those "it crashed the same day I did all the work" crashes are the worst!

PSS - Hmmm, I see now this was a "Mental Note To Self" - sorry to intrude on your internal scratch pad! Ha!
