For the love of technology

I sat, typing out a blog entry. It didn't take long, it was just that I was in the zone. Every word precise as I typed, hardly any backspacing for typos. It was great. Have you ever just known that what you typed was exactly what you wanted express and it was written exactly as you had thought it out? Well I had one such blogging session.
I've learned my less on in the past, I always save as I go along. But I was writing so quickly and the entry took less than 3 minutes to type so I don't think I even paused once. Needless to say, I didn't save. I got screwed by blogger. I clicked to post entry and the page said "temporary error". I hit the back button on the top of the browser window and it was the same... "temporary error". My blog entry masterpiece is gone forever. I am pissed at myself, pissed at blogger and just pissed at technology. I think, even though I've LEARNED my lesson with this before, that I just let it slip my mind and good old technology smacked my hand, once again.
People....... save your stuff as you go along. Technology is just sitting there waiting to smack your hands too. *sigh*

ooo gabi I hate when that happens. I have read that people will paste their entry in word and save it so they can have it when this happens. I never do and get p--- to when I loose it. hang in there and glad to see you back! :)

Hmmmm...this blog entry sounds VERY FAMILIAR!! I think you blogged this same thing some time ago sister...and I thought you would have learned by then!!!

I have done that too, but I hit the 'recover post' and it came back! I never saved a thing!! You should try that next time. ;-)
