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.

Damn! That's painful.

I used to use the Roaming feature in NS, and I miss it greatly in Mozilla not just for the loss of sync - but it gave me some peace of mind that there is a backup. Now I manually copy the file periodically just in case.

Seeming smart

Its amazing how quickly previously collected information turns into apparent IQ. Now you have to think on the spot instead of having already done the thinking in the past. Sorry to hear that.
