Always back up your data

I just managed to mangle my system a little. The NVIDIA drivers caused my X to crash, and when it crashed it ate my XF86Config file and the contents of ~/.mozilla. I lost my X config, and all my bookmarks.

Bugger :-/

Found a backup of my XF86Config, so I got that going again, but all my bookmarks are gone. I have a two-week old version on tape, so all isn’t totally lost, but it’s annoying all the same.

An online bookmark store might be a good idea now. So would cleaning out my homedirectory so it fits on my tapes.

My MS mouse has arrived. It’s got a blinding light on the bottom and lots of buttons. Hopefully after some use, the logo might come off 🙂
