How to Order
You can't get away from it. The time has come. You've been putting it off all week. You've got ReiserFS up and running, Exim's configured, you've just installed OpenSSH and patched it, Apache is working like a dream. The thing is, it's a mixed shop. The flaw in the apple, the fly in the ointment is that you're working with NT as well. You've got to deal with the NT machines. You know you left that file on the box yesterday. It was an important file, you don't know what you were thinking.

Since then it's bluescreened twice. There was some kind of defragmentation thing run on it this morning. The PFY was seen on the security cameras sacrificing something hairy in front of it around midnight last night.

With luck you might be able to find that file again. You're a sysadmin; surely it's not that hard? You've hacked and installed Solaris packages your peers would have balked at, getting one file from the clutches of the NTFS shouldn't be that hard, should it?

Or perhaps you're a deep API programmer. In which case you know there's no way back now. You lost your soul a long time ago to the MFT and O'Really can only offer condolences and promise to contact your family in the event of your death.

It won't be long now.
