It's 11:08pm EDT, I was working on a cool post, and was three paragraphs into it, when it disappeared.
Just. F^#%@&*ng. Disappeared.

It took a smoke break?
I hate it when that happens. I save major posts in Word or as an e-mail and then copy and paste into MT.
I compose everything as a draft and save frequently. I have on more than one occasion hit the back button on the wrong browser window and poof! So with frequent saves, only a little is lost.
Nanovirus, maybe? Ask Daniel.
I do a combination of what Susie and Jen do. After awhile, you get tired and it becomes near certain that you're going to click the wrong 'back' button.
Gas is a very powerful thing.
I did the back blunder once, and for a time did post in Word, but I figured I was careful enough now to just post at the login page. But the ting is: that's not what happened this time.
I had finished a paragraph and, as I stared at the screen forming the next sentence in my head, POOF!! Everything just vanished. I didn't do nuttin', man!
