So Sad!

I took the time to write up a blog entry and then I got an error when submitting. It made me so sad! I didn't have time to write it again since I needed time to say farewell to my post and then fume... you know... go through the motions of grieving. Razz

I hate that when it happens in any program.

Frustrating :/
I've taken to writing long posts in a text editor and pasting them in. That way, when something goes wrong submitting it's as easy as copy/pasting and trying again. I'd lost many a-post before I started doing that Razz

It happened to me several times.
Every time it happened I told myself to remember to copy and paste the content to something else like notepad or word before submitting,
but it never happened when I remembered to do so.

Maybe it's just another example of Murphy's Law.

Definitely our loss TG. Sorry that had to happen, particularly since quality posts at Frihost have become so scarce. Posts have become scarce I'm even reading the spam posts these days. That wants me to cry almost every time I visit. Crying or Very sad

Lazarus Form Recovery really is your friend in a situation like that. At least if you are using Google Chrome or Firefox as a browser !

You just re-visit the form you have been working on, right-click on the text entry field and select "Recover text". You even can recover entire forms !

One of the most important browser extensions ever !

That's an awesome recommendation Amagard and aptly named Lazarus! Cool

Looks as though Firefox also has a Lazarus in its Add-ons, however wouldn't install when I tried it out. Will try again later.

I think I might try that out. I prefer Chrome for personal stuff and find Firefox is better at work. Compatibility issues are interesting here.
