maybe you're not doing something correctly?

"bed" (binary editor) is actually pretty far along, but i was writing
another utility called "mr" which is a perl script that undeletes files
on ext2/ext3 filesystems.

i never finished it though -- i was writing it on my laptop since there
is no way in HECK i was going to write anything like that on my desktop
machines.  ;)

and i gave my laptop to my sweetie pie while she's in sunnyvale, so mr
hasn't been worked on in awhile...
