Some fucker just cracked my krypton account, and executed an rm -rf
hayden, which deleted every fucking file I owned.

Hopefully backups were made sometime withing the last couple of days and
I can recover much of the system, but don't bet on it being too cuurrent

for those who mailed in nerps stuff, I lost all the submissions, but i
will recover them from the logs, so don't bother.

I apologize for my language, but I'm not a happy camper. Suicide even
looked good for a moment.

Unfortunately, I also lost about 85k of reference materials for my thesis
as well. Stuff that cannot be replaced, ever (unless it was indeed
backed up, but I doubt it).

For those on log, cast whatever lists, I may have lost some names, I may
have also lost recent cast submissions. Hell, everything in the lat 5
days or so is probably gone. EVERYTHING.

I'm not happy.
