rm *

I just reminded myself how dangerous 'rm *' is. I deleted the copies of all the posts on my blog from my local system. Fortunately I had backups of all but the most recent 8 posts, and I could recover them easily enough, but this has reminded me to make my "daily" backups more regular than once a fortnight, and convinced me to add 'alias rm="rm -i"' back to my .bash_aliases.
