I was put on a team at work, we were given new software, and tasked with making a little practice project. We put about four hours of work into it.
Toward the end, I was just playing with the software. I added our new project to my list of preferred projects in my new workspace, and then I changed my mind, and deleted it from the list. Let me be clear. I deleted it from the list.
It even said, "Are you sure you want to delete this? You will not see it again."
A more accurate warning would have been, "You will not see it again, you, nor any of your kin: it will be gone from not only this list of preferred projects but all the world and all its bytes will be scattered to the ether."
Because it was not only gone from the list, it was 100% gone.
And because I am compelled to confess all my sins, I told everyone on my team immediately, then I told everyone on the larger team, then I publicly applauded myself for having only done it once in sixty years, then immediately remembered the time I deleted an entire project directory and then I had to tell everyone about that too.
Why am aI compelled in this way? Good thing I've never done anything criminal. Or good thing I don't remember it if I did.
