Put a USB drive in that I needed to delete some partitions on and reformat. Started up “Discs” (Linux) and deleted the first partition. Except, WRONG FREAKIN’ DRIVE! Fuck!
So, I deleted the boot partition on my regular hard drive.
Ouch! Triple Ouch!
Tried rebuilding it but won’t know how that went until I reboot. Which I’m NOT doing until I either HAVE TO or feel in the mood to rebuild every damned thing from scratch.
That’s 5 pages of programs that I use all the time. Which means downloading (sudo apt install ——-) and running the install. Thunderbird: 2-3 hours. VMWare Player: hour. Firefox and remembering my “sync” logins and actually syncing: hour. Everything else as I get to them: Day. Or two. Downloading, compiling & Installing MakeMKV: 2 hours.
Backup? You ask.
Yep. In your shorts backup.
