But there's a straightforward method to recover your lost file, and since it works on every standard Linux system, everyone ought to know how to do it.
Yesterday night Zack Rusin made a guest appearance on The Linux Link Tech Show.

Microsoft and novell made big IT news on Nov. 2 by announcing a historic burying of the hatchet, the likes of which we haven't seen since Sun and Microsoft promised to work together on big interoperability stuff.
This is the next article in our occasional series on new, more formal (mathematically-based) approaches to system development. The first article looked at Bayesian analysis and formal methods (which are only "new" to the general development space, of course).
Astronomers at New York City's Hayden Planetarium and Rose Center for Earth and Space think space exploration should be easily accessible to anyone. To make that possible, they offer an interactive atlas of the universe that anyone can download for free.
