The most miraculous thing just happened to me. I started getting an unusual error when i was trying to do an svn commit of a big site im working on. It read “The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable”. After doing several fresh checkouts the error wouldn’t go away, and so i googled it with zero hope of finding a solution. The first result led me too this thread on serverfault.com posted by a guy who had the same problem. Not only had the problem been identified, but there was a hotfix available from microsoft which actually resolved the problem. From the perspective of a developer/computer user/member of the human race, I cannot stress how unusual this series of events is. Now my only problem is that i don’t know how to spend the next few hours, which i would have ordinarily spent slamming my head through the keyboard.
