When will I learn to save my work while I am working on it, so that when the geriatric computer does something it shouldn't, I simply open the saved file and begin again?

Listen closely....can you hear me growling and swearing (very much under my breath due to the presence of children)?

I am putting myself into time out (with coffee-crummy coffee, too, stinkin' budget) and the computer is going into the stocks, erm, corner.

Don't swear; you know I can do it for you and not too many people are going to understand me!!!!

Draft mode is your friend. We've all done it and learned the lesson. :)

Arrgh! Must have been something in the air, cus I had the exact same thing happen to me late last night. TWICE!! Once as I was attempting to Blog, and again as I was sending a very long, well-thought email... both were LOST! Poof! Gone!

And here I thought technology was supposed to simplify our lives.. HAH!

P.S. I'm loving your new digs, here. The "category" feature is great!

I have only lost a post once, even tho I pretty much always type directly into the MT window without using a draft copy...

However, if you are working in anything except MT, you can usually go into options and change the frequency of autosaves. Maybe something as simple as Notepad doesn't have that, but MS Word, Wordperfect, Xcell, etc, all have that option. Look under "help", and search on "autosave', with maybe "frequency", also.

But, yeah, if you lost it from the MT New Entry window, I have no idea what to do to prevent that...
