Weeping Like A Child That's Lost It's Only Toy

I've just lost a post to bloggers random 'maintainence outage' and i'm fucked if i'm retyping the bastard. All I did was try to save the fucking thing..................Not knowing what 2-3am PDT means I had assumed it was something that was coming up rather than something that was happening as I typed. I've had the outage warnings before but it's never been a problem............... Is it beyond these docile fuckwits to co-ordinate their outages with timezones etc? Ah, sorry, i'm forgetting I got this shit for free and you really do get what you pays for...... It's not like I had anything of much worth to impart. You could have lived without it. It may just have made you smile/chuckle/roll your eyes or it might have made you question your existance (and not in a good a way.....). Anyway, i'm alive, slightly unwell and ready to re-enter society. Mine's a half of Absinthe landlord.....

I type up long and sometimes humourous comments and alot of them get lost when I hit publish so I copy first, I don't lose everyone of them but if I forget to copy I'll lose it and if I do copy it will go through ok, Blogger may very well be the antichrist.

I'm the same; I've lost too many WORKS OF GENIUS (or something) to server troubles so I write my entries in a notepad file first. It has the added advantage of not notifying IT that you're skiving when at work...

Anyway. Nice to see you back, dude.

yeah, I know...............

Thing is, my email is so fucking unpredictable that I have to save what i've written each time I want to start a new paragraph, so i'll be damned if i'm going to indulge blogger. I know the score now. If it mentions 'outage' anywhere in future i'll save it to a notepad and publish it later.

Glad to hear you are on the mend. I agree that the raindrops are very fine.
