This is not so much a question. It's more an expression of my seemingly unending frustration.

I have spent HOURS upon HOURS composing replies to posts and PMs and have REPEATEDLY lost all of my hard work.

Why? Mostly because I lose count and put too many Graemlins in my reply. You think I would learn my lesson. [shake]

If anyone here has PMd me something and thought I would have replied, this is likely what has happened. It usually takes me quite some time to recover from the frustration.

When I do recover, it is likely because I forgot what happened. Then I go about my business thinking I had replied.

The longer and more in depth my reply, the harder it is for me to fathom doing it all over again.

I just did it again and found myself staring at that stupid error message fearfully trying to decide whether to click on the link or the browser's "back" button.

I know one makes me lose the reply and the other sometimes doesn't. The link was the WRONG choice. [Frown]

I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions to stop me from repeatedly doing the same stupid thing.

I really like using the Graemlins for expression because I think that sometimes the way I word things, my meaning could be misconstrued. I know I should stop but I think it's like an OCD or something [shake] .

I wonder if a link back to the message you're creating could be placed in the error message, or instructions to use the browser's back button to make a correction, instead of the link that makes everything vanish into the black hole.

I realize that it's very possible that I am the ONLY one here who REPEATEDLY does this, however it does seem like cruel and unusual punishment for my Lyme-induced stupidity.

I guess there is something positive I can realize from this experiment. If someone were to give me electric shocks every time I reached for the cheese, I probably wouldn't starve to death. [lol] [Roll Eyes]

HaHaHa, I put "CTRL-N" in the other thread [lol] I couldn't even remember CTRL-A long enough to put it in my reply. [dizzy] [lol]

Maybe they could make it automatically go to preview, then click to send or go back from there? I can't even remember to preview sometimes.

I really wish someone could protect me from myself! [Roll Eyes]

Thanks Cave!

When I went to post the suggestion over here, in case someone in a position to do something might read it, I realized my mistake in confusing the CTRL letters when I reread your post.

Hi Ali,

many thing about typing it in word, etc., SAVE IT OFTEN so you don't lose all your work!

My pc has been locking up completely and I've lost a lot of stuff, but saving often I don't have to go back to square one!

If you are a slow typed, save every minute or 2!

I lost a legal agreement between 50-75 pages once; had to retype it from scratch! Always have a backup copy on IMPORTANT STUFF! [loco]
