rhaaa! I spent all day yesterday moaning at fools who delete their e-mails accidentally and then expect me to restore them from backup - and this fool has just gone and deleted his whole fecking inbox ......... rhaaa!

Trouble is, the expected timescale for the project has been drastically reduced. It is now being implemented in early 2006, and i have to get my first draft proposals done by Dec 6th, and then ready to be perfected and presented to our resource management commitee on Jan 7th with the final contracts being signed a few days later.
In other news the mbox file containing my inbox has been restored from backup! Hopefully I can resist the urge to start typing any more 'rm' commands in /var/mail, when I should actually be typing a 'du -hs' command!

Just do an "rm /" as root, much more fun, increases hard disk space considerably...
If only we had a linux server instead of win 2003.
