Today I took an extra swig of idiot juice and deleted my /usr/lib directory in the first 5 minutes of the day.

    Well that wasn't a very smart decision, was it :)

    @polaroidkidd Good one! I should adopt this thinking as well :D

    Best is the feeling of ultimate stupidity afterwards followed by a scary emptiness in your head...

    ... I had this, while being in thought, after I hit 'enter' and realized I had typed in (as root): "rm -rf /etc"...

    By The Goddess was I relieved that I had /etc backed up using git!

    @Yamakuzure isn't that a lot of.... git?

    @polaroidkidd well, a lot of text files. I like to keep track of what gets added/removed/changed on updates.
    However, the main reason for me to use git there is, that I like to tweak my configs.
    And when one of my... erm... not so brilliant ideas wreaks havoc, I can easily roll back.
    I have a rather lengthy .gitignore, though. 😋

    @Yamakuzure that's a pretty good way to go about it! I think I might try that!
