Facebook lost my data!

I received an email 10 minute ago. The mail body is below
Unfortunately, the settings that control which email notifications get sent to you were lost. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
To reset your email notification settings, go to:<wbr>editaccount.php?notifications
The Facebook Team

I was surprised very much with this. I thought that it is a phishing email but I see the sender and I logged in to my account and found this message.

Oh! it's real! I don't know what's happen at Facebook.(wait for news) but it made the image of facebook look bad. The very big website lost their member data. How about backup system?
There is no backup for the data?
After I googled about this issue, many bloggers have commented about this too. Really I love facebook more than other social networking websites. I wait for the news to know what happen to the Facebook now?

Emesene crashes during logging in

I use emesene 1.0 on Debian. It usually works great and I prefer it to pidgin.

But there are a few bugs. Emesene crashed during logging in. It'll crash everytime after it occurs the first time. I don't know why. It hardly occurs and it crashed unexpectedly. I used to see this bug a few times in the past. My friend found it too and has already found the solution. Deleting all the files in ~/.config/emesene1.0/[your_account] is the solution but you have to sacrifice your config files and preferences.

I got it crashed again. But this time I found the better solution. I digged in the file and found that deleting the PersonalMessage.conf in ~/.config/emesene1.0/[your_account] is enough.

The file contains you personal message. After I deleted it, emesene can logging in and online again. The preferences still be but only personal message not.

I took experiment something. I set presonal message to the previous personal message that's in the PersonalMessage.conf before It's deleted. It contains Thai and English word in mix. It crashed immediatly. I run it and set it again. It crashed. This time I set the personal message to only English message like "test". It didn't crash. Now I can set the previous message and crashing haven't occured anymore.

Maybe this is the clue of this bug. I'll report it to the bug tracker later.
