I can't even begin to describe how inconvenient that was. I have 6 virtual workspaces stacked with terminals open with emacs on different projects, log files tailed, odd users logged into odd places and what have you not. Bang. Gone. Like having Java enabled under Netscape 4.0.
I guess this makes it a good time to install the new fast CD-RW I bought in December but haven't installed because I'd have to close all my windows and reboot. Hmn... Sucks anyway. Piece of shit linux box. I'm sure it's just a few years ago something like this last happened.
I'm a small person. I have small problems.
