AAARRRGGGG!!!!

I just spent the best part of 30 minutes writing up a really long post about Indie Press Games and my thoughts on their sales potential, future predictions and potential troubles down the road when the webmail client I was working on (I was/am at work) crashed on me and lost the lot!

It had to happen on a post that I was really proud of and thought would wake a few people up and generate a fair bit of debate on a mailing list I'm on.

Grrr - I really REALLY hate it when that happens.

I guess I was 'logged' off for taking so long about it? I don't know.

In anycase, the post is completely lost. I'm now wiating for Rosie to come and pick me up from work and then we're off for a Starbucks before heading home to possibly try and rewrite it.

When's the last time you saw a post on that list change someone's mind?

I used to have faith in humanity. Then it changed my mind.

This really sucks. I hope you make another attempt, I'm really interested in reading what you had to say.

Thats why I tend to use word for long posts.

And Opera as when that crashes it takes you back to the page you were at and fills in most of tht text that you typed.

I'd be interested in reading your take on that topic, if it ever reappears.

I feel your pain though. I've had that happen to me a few times in LJ. Now I try to remember to copy long posts to the clipboard, at least before attempting to submit them (though usually I forget).
