I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment How did `git pull` eat my homework?
@Patrick As I explained in the question already, no .git does not exist. Nothing does—what used to be the git root directory has nothing in it at all.

comment How did `git pull` eat my homework?
@FaheemMitha I already mentioned in the question that the only thing lost will be some items in stash, but that's not a big deal. I still want to know how this happened and make it not do so again!

@UlrichDangel No NFS, virus scanner, backup scripts or cleanup is involved. It's a local EXT4 file system on LUKS on LVM on local SATA drives. Cron is empty.

comment What is the correct way to abort an operation from the sudo password prompt?
@ryekayo I'm confused about the "right" approach as well (hence asking this). It seems like it should respond to the first Ctrl+C and for many people it is, but in some situations it obviously isn't. I have not figured out the difference yet.

@ryekayo Do you do that because it does not respond to the first one or for some other reason?

comment How to upload a file from Windows to Linux?
@user3676417 Please don't keep commenting on answers with separate questions. You asked the same thing on my answer. If we have not answered the question you asked you can request clarification, but you seem to have a question unrelated to your original question or either of our answers. If you need an answer about filezilla being slow, you can ask that as a separate question but it is not a Unix&Linux question and should be asked on Super User.

comment How to upload a file from Windows to Linux?
@user3676417 Again this has little to do with the software you are using. It sounds like your bandwidth is being throttled somewhere, although since you haven't said how fast your internet should be there is really nothing to do but speculate. You could try a different transport mechanism in case your ISP or someone else is throttling you based on activity type. Start with a generic up/down speed test and go from there. Remember most ISP's don't provide as much upload speed as download. Super User might be a better place for a question about how to identify speed issues.
