I was in my IDE writing up a new program, but my compiler didn't accept the encoding format of the files. Because I used special characters, it flipped a lot of encodings around. Then I changed my projects master encoding, then all of the source files they all messed up. The all the files were composed of "????????" I went to a backup and they were messed up too. I exploded... Control Z couldn't even be my hero this time.

    IntelliJ, and I used UTF 8, but that doesn't support some of the characters I used. It wasn't a big project, I can just redo it tonight.
