MythArchive, best failure mode ever!

Share

So, you’re creating a native archive with MythArchive. You’ve never run it before, so you just give it a go. It can’t write data files to the place the videos are at, so what is it’s failure mode? Well, how about trying to change permissions on every file on the machine? Lovely.
