It depends on your partitionlayout.

Apart from that:
tom once i 'rm -rf *' without recognizing i am in the wrong directory.
And since it was a Gentoo that day where compiling the system took ~1 whole
week with the system i had.
Guess who is the more 'the profoundly embarrassed loose cannon' you or me?


If there would ever be a 'geek' pretending he never did such fault i would
not belive he is a geek.

So the good news is: you learn from it.
