Scary thing

Something you should never really do in linux but especially not when you've nearly finished writing your thesis on the machine in question is to accidentally move /usr into the root trash can. Thus leaving you with a computer with no applications and in a state that won't load, thankfully a recovery CD allows the moment of the folder back to the correct location!

Well at least it wasn't "rm -rf /" this time.

Of course, if you had rm'd your computer, you've got it all on backup right?

Would have still cost me about a days work. If it had been rm'd.
