Subject: Nvi saved the file amalaika_ml.sql
On Thu Oct 13 12:21:48 2005, the user root was editing a
file named amalaika_ml.sql on the machine, when it was saved for recovery. You
can recover most, if not all, of the changes to this file
using the -r option to vi:
vi -r amalaika_ml.sql
See, i edited the file in October 13, 2005, i got the report in Mar 27, 2006, so this much be a new featured added to NVI.
