I’ve been getting into single board computers, and I’ve overwritten my external hard drive twice now trying to flash OS images to SD cards from my Linux PC using dd (good thing my important data is backed up). To be fair, it’s totally my fault, but I’m curious if anyone else has done this.

    Yeah, it’s very easy to mix up /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc. Did it once and have PTSD from it, I triple-check every time now and still feel uneasy every time.
