doh!

I can't believe it. I just made the most rookie UNIX mistake ever. After 20+ odd years use of UNIX use, I did what any book will say on page one paragraph one, NOT to do:

#rm -rf mv BUFFYS4D3.iso ../Buffy/

(translation: intended action, move my latest Buffy DVD ISO into my Buffy folder / actual action, try remove a non-existent file called mv [the move command] and remove my entire collection of Buffy DVDs)

I'm mortified with shame, someone revoke my *NIX license... XFS seems particularly unforgiving in this situation.
