  • Ah, the freezing feeling as you give birth to a football out of vacuum inside of your own stomach. as the words "Oh no" comes out of your mouth. Last was when I by mistake cleared out a howl eventlog. I was supposed to just clear the search I had made. But I cleared out the howl eventlog. Life is fun that way. Not a typo. But I had to his up the "Idiot flag" for every one and own that misstake. =)

  • My biggest mistake was a switching of terms. I told support, "I have transferred all the data from the *large* hard drive to the *small* hard drive. Feel free to reformat the *large* hard drive." But I had it the wrong way around. They did exactly as I said and reformatted the drive with all the data on it. All of it. All the data. All. Years of work. And I didn't find out about it for two weeks. My onosecond came two weeks after my mistake. I guess that makes it an onofortnight.

  • Protip: learn how to dump *all* (both kernel & user) memory to a file on every machine you work on in a single command. That has saved my life a few times. Chances are good that you could have dug up most of your content that way, as memory is usually not emptied, but kept around until overwritten or until garbage collection runs. This works for databases, form fields in browsers, etc. Everything has to be stored somewhere :) And if it's not in memory then the same goes for disk storage (although be sure to know when to dump memory or raw disk, so that you don't overwrite your stuff on disk with your memory dump).

  • That's always this kind of story in Computer Science courses (or similar courses), and what I've always heard from these was that it was easy to restore the data using the database log

  • The thing is, you can divide software developers into two categories: Ones who have made that kind of mistake, and ones who are going to. Because the _only_ thing that stops you doing that is personal exposure to that visceral feeling of your stomach trying to exit your body by both routes simultaneously.

  • Last year I was working on a rom hack of an old video game. Using a tool I accidentally change a parameter out of range, now the tool I used to modify the parameter can’t find it (because it’s over the parameters its looking for) and the part of the game I modified is unplayable. I lost months of work just because I never took the time to make a backup.
