No, you've hard reset to that state. The only possible thing I can
think of are files that you have created but not tracked, which may
still exist in the directory.

No, don't think so. You already have a copy of the local repo, and
you're not deleting any commits... So I think you could reset up back
to {HEAD}.

Better yet, just do git checkout <commit>? to switch to that view of
the commit, then checkout master to seitch back to your working dir :D

Either that, or my tiredness is exponentially growing.
