zen & art of rm -rf = (whoops) / hidden home
(rh9 , 2.4.20-18.9 , only a few weeks installed )
a couple days ago I did something stupid.
I forcfully removed all the .*
$rm -rf .*
in /home/dumbass directory. (only one user if that matters)
yes I should know better, it had something to do with nethack, and I was feeling bold and impatient
...what is done is done,
but what did I do?
wasn't root, but I seem to have really done a number on the desktop... after a few minutes of panic, and a restart, the problems seem to be mostly cosmetic-- but a few things are acting a little weird...
so here it is:
1. what kind of stuff (important or not) was there before I zapped it? and how do I, or do I need to, get it back?
thanks, & happy I.D. to us Americans.
