There’s an arsonist in my library and it’s me

While tinkering with RB svn (11.3), I thought it not necessary to make a backup of my music library. I can see you already shaking your head. Anyway, filed a bug yesterday, and it’s already been resolved. As for my music library, I happened to have an automatically created backup from when I opened the db (it’s just XML) in emacs! To think I was going to disable that feature….

~/.gnome2/rhythmbox$ ls -lht rhythmdb.xml*
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve steve 4.0M 2007-12-02 14:52 rhythmdb.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve steve 6.1M 2007-03-10 04:11 rhythmdb.xml~

I only lost 9 months of library changes…… A grand total of 165 songs?! 😮 Something’s wrong there…. My ratings! >.< Could have been worse, I suppose. Lesson learned (hopefully, for the last time). Always make backups! 😀
