Searching for Database Dumps


It's interesting to search your home directory for database dumps:

find ~ -type f \( -name '*.sql' -o -name '*.dump' \) -print

You never know what you might find.

If you're lucky, you might find a database dump from a project you worked on years ago.

Otherwise, you might find that you upgrade your laptop too often, or that you're too good about cleaning up old files to leave fun database surprises for yourself.
