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.

"Big List of Wrong Names for the Command Key"

AAHAHAHAHA!!! I'm quite fond of calling it "Key with the apple symbol on it next to the space bar...yeah that one", myself. =D

The puppyfoot key! XD
