I just spend an hour typing this up. Went to copy it to make sure I wouldn't lose it. Hit the wrong key in the process and there is no undo.

*comfort* I hate that. LJ is unforgiving of mistakes.

Yup. Which I why I usually do what megamole suggests...

Arrrgh *sympathy*. Done this before myself.

This is why I put long posts into a text editor and set backups to 5 minute intervals.

Yes... I usually type the stuff up in a text editor myself, offline and all and then just cut and paste. But for reasons unfathomable to myself, I didn't do that last night. Oh well... as dreiviertel says below...

Yep. Not good at all. *sighs*

:((( The only consolation is: it could take less the second time as you'll remember snatches of what you said in the first one...

Very true. I made some quick notes before I went to bed last night about the kinds of thing I'd said in the first attempt. So at some point, I'll type it all up again. In a text editor this time and then I'll post it. Watch this space!

Argghh; I've done that (usually by hitting ctrl-v when I meant ctrl-c), mainly when writing lengthy replies. When writing long posts I usually just do them in Word or whatever and copy/paste; then thankfully there is the 'undo' option. *hugs*
