Dont it just Kill Ya?
« on: July 01, 2008, 07:18:39 PM »
 Doesnt it just burn your rear when you,ve been typing something here and when you hit "post" you realize you've hit "Host" or some other button and you've lost something you've written which has taken it seems forever to compose?
 I do this every now and then..I think my fingers are faster than my eyes!

just thought I'd vent :-x

your friend,
john

Most times if you hit that little arrow away up there in the upper left corner, known as a back button, you get it all back.  :-D

This is what I do as well for what you described or if you make a post and that red warning comes up saying someone was posting at the same time, you can go back and hit enter then.

John, oh I feel your pain.  Having worked in the word processing field so many, many years ago, I have learned quick advantages to taking a moment and saving documents as I type.  When I am composing a lengthy post, I always, and I mean always, save the text as I am typing.  I am a keyboard command fanatic, and I use keyboard shortcuts for actions.

Many times I have lost text and it can be the most annoying thing on earth. 

This is what I do when I am typing a lengthy post.  These all involve keyboard commands.

I push the Control Button and A (Crtl A, this highlights all the text)
I push then Ctrl C (copies all the text)

Then I carry on typing.  I know at least most of the text has been copied into the clipboard.  If I am typing even more, I repeat this procedure and the text is again copied, overwriting the original work in the clipboard space.

This is especially useful if I want to go and look up something on the internet while I am creating a post.  I have lost too much data over the years to not know the benefit of putting text into the clipboard.

Another thing that I will do now and then, if the text is extremely lengthy, I copy my typing into a MS word document and then copy all the text into the post.  Just some tips from someone else who has been there, done that.  Beautiful and most wonderful day, Cindi

OK. On another subject I started a post and changed my mind. I then went on to something else. I then did write up another post and posted it and then went on to another page. I then went on to some other something and thought about this thread here. So I came back and hit the back button. On the fourth hit was the window where I was writing the post that I posted, it was still there and four more hits got me to the post I was writing that I didn't post. It was still there.

What browser do you use?

Now I am writing this and right here I am hitting the host it button...

All that did was open up another window so I didn't have to hit the back button. This never went away.
