Isn’t that a synonym for Oracle ?
Turns out /dev/sdb and /dev/sdg are different. But they both can be formatted the same way, apparently.
Oh no. Oh no oh no oh no oh no! Hope you have backups!
It was the backups. And it is again, but not before a fair bit of work!
Just now I was setting up a Raspberry Pi for some stuff and executed
sudo rm -rf /* instead of
sudo rm-rf ./*.
At least it wasn’t on a paid VM running popular forum software with ~500 users, no, I definitely haven’t done that in the past…
One thing I learned a long time ago…

I’ve been waiting two weeks to get AS3360s for my VCA/Mixer. They finally came today. I look at the back of the module and… the chips are already in there. It’s the TL074s I hadn’t put in, and I’ve got loads of those.
I was working on a drone module and decided I wanted to test the CV input. Well, I plugged in my LFO and immediately heard a pop from the LFO. That’s when I realized I hadn’t grounded the LEDs in the vactrols. I had to replace both TL072s in the LFO, one was pretty spectacularly blown up.
Excellent chip gore!
That’s like, album cover worthy.
ouch that’s defo dead silicone

I wish i could say thats never happened to me before.
Better than getting it in your foot

So either I or the Tayda developer(s) decided it would be a good idea to reset all of the values on the resistor quick order page to 10.
Back to Tayda I go then.
yeah I thought that had a 100 minimum ? maybe I am thinking of somewhere else .
Well at least the order of magnitude did not leave you swamped.
Unlike the time my colleague ordered 10,000 staples from xerox for our copiers. not realising the units were boxes of 10,000…
