I didn’t think this was possible…It’s getting late on friday afternoon, I’m packing up my stuff to go out for dinner and a beer after work. I hit the power button on my laptop, but it doesn’t suspend…so I keep holding the button (I’m getting impatient at this point), and the computer does a hard power-off. It’s ok, I’m thinking as the guy next to me sees what has just happend and is laughing, because I’m using the EXT3 filesystem. But no, it’s not ok. Somehow my EXT3 linux partition becomes horribly corrupt. fsck can’t even fix it. So I bust out my Debian netinstall CD, and head down to the Thirsty Ear to drink.
