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.

good idea!
much less hassle than actually saving the text.

although it wouldn't work if the whole computer died, i guess that's a much less likely occurence...

True enough. But it would help in a few more instances...
