    I've made a similar mistake myself. I forgot to commit my latest changes to CVS on a friday night before I went home. Monday morning in a pre-caffeine haze I decided it would be a good idea to save a config file. No problem there I hear you cry. Well I also decided it would be a good idea to name the config file the same name as my program. I can't really say why I did that only that the next words out of my mouth were "oh fuck". Not to worry I thought, a quick call to my sysadmin should solve that because he'll have the backup from Friday night right? Wrong. "Oh, for some reason the backups on that box haven't worked since last Wednesday" - was the reply I received from said sysadmin.

    I think I nearly cried :)
