Another life lesson to be learned from my mistakes.

If you are resizing a partition using a live DVD, don't decide you want to watch Super Troopers while waiting and eject the DVD. You will break the partition table. So here I am, sitting in another live environment, copying files with TestDisk. I've been pretty chill about it since all of my really important files are on Dropbox (best $100 ever spent), but still, there are things that aren't in Dropbox that I'd like to have, and at least TestDisk can get those for me. Even if it takes a while.

Woohoo, breaking stuff.

After copying over several hundred gigs of data, I mount the drive for the heck of it. My data is there asdf.

Oh well....I guess. Thank you, TestDisk!
