LOL!  I can imagine that something like that will happen eventually.  My
very first computer had Win 3.1.  While working on it I typed "del *.*".
 I intended to do that but I did it in the wrong place.  Instead of
where I wanted to do it I accidentally did it in the root of the C
drive.  Luckily I knew enough about how the computer worked at that
point to know better then shut it off without restoring those files.
