These are trying times, folks.

Specifically, I just tried to post a magnum opus I spent all yesterday working on, and Blogger just ate it.

This leaves me with two choices -- either slash my wrists, or retire for the weekend and see if I can post on Monday.

I'm opting for the latter, but only just.

The technology thing is great except for when it isn't.

I'm not a fan of Bloggers 'new look' or functionality either, but i guess you get what you pay for.

The second time in as many months.

I do not understand how it's possible to accidentally delete something that's been saved repeatedly.

Steve and others,

Do all your writing in MSWord and save it when done. Then copy and paste your article into your blog. If Blogger eats it, no problem, as you still have it saved in Word. Copy and paste it again until Blogger finally takes it. Simple, eh? I speak from experience. This solution actually works and keeps you from pulling out any more hair.

For simple text I use notepad the same way.

I'd like to second Oxy and buzzbabyjesus's recommendations.

Word, Notepad, anything -- when composing swathes of text (especially magnum opera), the watchword is "save, save, save!". (Actually, that's three watchwords, but it's the same word repeated, so I guess it's still the watchword. I think.)
