Little frustration

I just wrote the best journal entry I've done in a long time, real writing, not just a recount of my day or some rant. My new ISP regarded spell check as a pop up, and when I tried to open it, my entry disappeared. Argh. This calls for chocolate, lots of it.

Yikes, Cynthia, dammit, and all that! It has happened to me on occasion, and I am trying to make myself write the entry in Word first, then cut and paste it into the journal. Just a thought. But I know it feels oh so much more immediate when you are posting directly.

Any chance of a re-creation for avid readers?? :)

Any excuse for eating chocolate is valid. Sorry you lost the entry -- I long ago gave up on AOL, Blogger, Typepad and Wordpress' online editors and started doing ALL of my composition in HTML mode in Open Office 2.0 (it was OO 0.5 when I started).

Haven't lost an entry since!

I always compose my entries in Word and then copy and paste them. Lost a couple good entries into the ozone early on, and the word processing program became a habit right quick. :-]

Chocolate is good. I love it when the thrice blasted machines decide to go into business for themselves. Arrrgh.

Oh so sorry, Cynthia! I hate when that happens!

I've gotten into the habit of writing entries in Word and saving periodically while writing. That has prevented tragedies such as yours from re-occuring.
