go to the bit bucket.

was it someone else??) were arguing that noobs were losing their data
from hitting C-A-B and BLINK!, so the old way of recovering from X
screwing up that for so long hadn't hurt anything to a significant
degree must be changed to save people from klutz fingers and asinine
pranksters on IRC now that they lost their email they were composing to
