The other day at work I was doing something and accidentally made a folder named tilde.

$ ls
~ bin lib spec

Oops, well I guess I should remove that.

$ rm -r ~
rm: remove write-protected regular file `blah'?

Wait… what?! Oh crap, did that just delete my home directory?

Lucky I had a backup on my home computer. I have an rdiff-backup run weekly. I changed that to daily.

Man what a day.
