Pride, as they say, goeth before a fall.
I decided to put the LinuxChix FAQs up on sourceforge, making use of their repository for my offsite backup. But I wanted to have the markup nice and clean and tidy before putting a project with my name on it up where everyone could see it.
I didn't have a .sgml ending on the file 'issues'. I typed 'sgmltools issues'. sgmltools went ahead and created a directory 'issues' ....
Well. One way and another, I've lost it. And stupidly, I don't have a backup. At all. Even grovelling through the swap partition couldn't find a copy. Stupid, stupid me.
So I get to do it over, from the Cerebral Backup Unit. Oh well.
