This morning, I accidentally deleted a folder full of scripts and results I am using for a talk I’ll be giving this afternoon. Fortunately, I don’t need the numbers any more, but losing the scripts is a hassle.
I had listed the directory, noticed a lot of backup files (ending “~”), so decided to clear those before progressing. “rm *~” is easy enough, but damn, that ~ key is right next to the ‘return’ key. Finger slipped. Oops.
