One of the toughest things about being a technical person is learning the limitation of it. More importantly, reconciling with my own limitations about the technology. Unfortunately, I just experienced it in a big way. I was converting my website and began reorganizing my website. In the course of it, I accidentally deleted my class blog in its entirety with one simple click.
In some sense, I suppose it’s not a big deal because I hardly noticed that anyone was reading it. However, it is devastating to realize I lost so much. I lost pictures that I posted. I lost words that I wrote. I can imagine how Mat Honan felt when he wrote, “How Apple and Amazon Security Flaws Lead to My Epic Hacking,” except that I have no one but myself to blame.
I hope it never happens to me again.
