Oh Bother

Translation: "#!~*$*&#@!%~*#@#!!!!!!!"

I'd written over 5,000 words for my NaNoWriMo story since Wednesday night, yet thanks to my own stupidity and an odd quirk in Windows XP's "Save to disk/Open With" feature, none of it was actually ever permanently saved, even though I hit the save button rather frequently.

I'm rather annoyed right now.

OMG! I'm very sorry about this. I've lost long posts before, but not 5,000 words written over several days. Suxxx.

I would be batshit crazy over that.

I got nuthin' constructive to add... just... "bummer".

A Mac would NEVER have the audacity to lose your data like that. ;) I hope you were able to recover it and keep going -- this madness ends tonight! Whee! Here's to hoping my Assclown Wednesdays aren't an outright circus so I can sneak in a few thousand words this afternoon myself.
