For security I’ve been storing all my work stuff on an encrypted disk image. I knew the dangers of this going in – not only was I taking a substantial risk using disk images at all, but I was going with a sparse image to boot. Must be that masochistic streak.
Long story short, the retarded disk image is now corrupt. It’s now so secure that no-one on the planet can read it. Awesome. I didn’t want the last four hours of work anyway. Pfft.
