My cat deleted my bookmarks

Kiddy walked across my keyboard last night, and managed in so doing to bring up the Mozilla bookmark editor, select the top of the tree, and delete it. I don't think I could have deleted my bookmarks that quickly if I had wanted it.

It's gone.

Almost 10 years of effort went into those bookmarks.

All the little webapps and magic key little documents I've accumulated links to, that make me seem so amazingly smart at work. Gone. The list of "books I want to buy someday". Gone. The list of online novels I have been reading. Gone. The list of "neat things to want". Gone.


Yeah, it was dumb of me not to have it backed up.

But still.
