PSA: Before You Post

weather: cloudy
outside: 9°C
mood: sympathetic
Because you're my friends, I hate to see you seething in rage when LJ ate the post you spent time crafting to perfection and knowing that it's completely preventable:

Pleasepleaseplease, just before you hit the Post button, hold down the CONTROL key and press 'A', then 'C'. This selects everything you've written and copies it to the Copy&Paste buffer.

If LJ has eaten the post, immediately open up your favorite text editor or Notepad or MS Word or even a new LJ post and go CTRL-V to paste.

Do it. Make this a habit. Even if LJ says they're saving your drafts for you.

Been doing this since my days on Xanga and I agree that ti saves sooo much grief and rage. Applies to using browser-based e-mail, forums, blogs... anything... great technique.

Yup, especially now that I have a wireless connection that can flake out for no apparent reason. =P

On that topic.. sometimes I 'borrow' a neighbour's wireless connection.

Windows drops it all the time, but Linux has *not once* dropped the connection.
