@DanielOCnr @garthk And indeed there is no data loss. Everything happened as it should have happened.

via TweetDeck in reply to DanielOCnr

@parislord @bunjaree M’pleasure, on both counts. As I said, I’m finding the Amos Yee story to be utterly fascinating.

via TweetDeck in reply to parislord

Fortunately, there has been no data loss. Yet. That’s why I was cross-checking all these hard drives today. Good thing I did.

via TweetDeck

“Orphaned directory inode,” three of my favourite* words. Repeatedly.

via TweetDeck

Bad things come in threes, and that’s three.

via TweetDeck

So, that’s a hard drive needing a file system repair, (in progress), a WordPress site broken (and fixed), and one hacked (owner is fixing).

via TweetDeck

@kcarruthers Sigh. I suppose someone had to say it, but even so.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

@OaaSvc You’d have thought. But I now have to run a repair on an external drive.

Note to self: Don’t try to run two simultaneous fsck_hfs processes on the same disc, because it’ll end in tears.

@jpwarren My CompSci course at Adelaide has a Theory of Computation subject, where we had to reproduce Turing etc. But optional.

@jpwarren I haven’t looked at a CompSci syllabus for 15 years. Either way, it’d surely be an optional subject.
