The cure for cancer, the key to happiness, where to find your missing socks, that sort of thing.

Yeah, the backup thingie didn't work this time.

I'll try again tonight.

That's why if I have anything long to type for posting, I first compose it in Word, then cut and paste it into the page.

i got in the habit of, before hitting the [submit] button, selecting the contents of an extra-long post and hitting [ctrl-c] just to make sure if anything happens, and the electrons get lost, i can just re-reply, and then paste my words back.

granted, this doesnt work if the whole computer breaks... but its still better than nothing.

I generally curse, damage the laptop, hop and leap around the room, curse a little more, and write an inferior version of the original post.

Of course, I am also seeking treatment for Anger Management problems.
