Breaking News

I broke some stuff today.

Today I’ll be extra careful on my way home. So far I have – after just having recovered from a database crash – deleted an important table on my blog. Luckily only after making a complete backup.

Later I managed to ‘rm -r *’ one directory higher up in the hierarchy than I thought I was. Lucky again, I noticed before all the data was deleted because my -hacked- local java install was not writable and asked wether I wanted to delete the files. I was then able to rsync the missing data from another host in the same cluster.

I guess today’s luck is used up.

Update: to top it all, when going home I wanted to lock my screen and instead of ctrl-alt-l for the lock ein managed to hit ctrl-alt-backspace .. killing my X-windows … yay me …
