Don't put files in /tmp/ if you want them later

The orc artwork, for some obscure reason, was in /tmp/

Well, I expected it to be a one off.

Now those nice people at apple have replaced my cracked iPad2 I have to engrave it again, and, well, it has gone.

How bloody stupid. Nothing is ever a "one off". I should know this.



  1. That's why when you shouted at me for never putting anything in /tmp/ i was right and you were wrong...

  2. Reminds me of people who store important emails in "Deleted Items" and then shout at the IT admin when they get deleted...

    (Happened to a friend of mine)

  3. Open Source it and let the world be your backup
