    Has anyone seen my .profile file? It had lots of paths in it, aliases and vars, so stuff just works not now.

    Seriously, it is a big problem and I didn't expect this from a 5 month old MBP. Has this happened to anyone? Is there a way to recover? I was used to this sort of sh** on Windows and that was completely understandable on that platform. Please tell me Mac is not same as PC only nicer box.

    I think I saw your ~/.profile in the recycling bin on the street corner.

    And no, I've never had this happen. Perhaps you ran an installer that tried to overwrite it with something else but failed.
