Lost my post!

Post by Proinsias » Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:19 pm

I have in the past spent a lot of time writing posts and then hit the post button, lost them and got grumpy. I am now in the habit, and have been for some time, of selecting all then copying before clicking submit. I've seen a few people here recently lamenting the loss of large posts. Ctrl/Cmd A - Ctrl/Cmd C before hitting the post button is a habit that will pay off on occasion and I feel is worthwhile.

Just a thought.

Thanks For the tip Proinsias. I seem to lose my posts on my iPod. More than once in a long post, my iPod has kicked me off safari onto the menu page. Very frustrating. :twisted:

Good idea. Or, use a word processor and then cut and paste the post in so you can do it again if you lose it.

I made copying the post a habit very early after losing some long posts.
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.

And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

I've also lost posts. All of my really-really-really smart posts have been lost.

I just lost another.

I often do copy before clicking post. I've posted at other forums where the date isn't lost if you hit the back button.
