Crazy Rant

This is my WTF moment. Pardon my French but WTF!!! I don't want to blame anyone but myself. So full and sure of myself that I am not careful. I wrote a blog before this but thanks to my excellent typing skills(sarcasm button is on) and my encounter with CAPTCHA (sounds like Captain CHA to me and I had to Google it). As the french says, VOILA! My blog was sent into electronic oblivion. I imagined the most annoying gong sounded, my annoying brother rolling on the floor laughing at my stupidity and my conscience stomping its foot and reprimanding me.

Lesson that I learned and would always be my mantra, be careful. Always, have a backup file. Either write it on word or save it as a draft.

I should write down my mantra over the walls of my room, on my forehead and wrists. That way I will be reminded every second that I need to be wise and careful.

Write in notepad then cut and paste. Qui vivra verra.

Thanks for the suggestion. One thing I don't like with notepad is that it is continuous. It never fits into the screen.

We also have the "restore cache" button when you hit the back button at the bottom that will restore your last written article provided you haven't entered anything new in.

Format, word wrap. Take the soft returns out later.

And, I'm pretty sure you meant to say "voila," not "viola" - a small stringed instrument. :)

LOL. This is so embarrassing. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm worst with my typing skills. :/

LoudMan wrote on August 7, 2014, 2:15 PM

Alright. But, feel free to pick on me back anytime you like. :)

LoudMan wrote on August 7, 2014, 2:16 PM

I am king of the typos. My first ten or so posts end with "Edited for typos." :)

LoudMan wrote on August 7, 2014, 2:18 PM

Fresh out of chortle. How about some mott mott mott?

btrino I owe you an apology. I am an ass. You DID say, right there in your opening sentence you were only mad at yourself. I'm sorry.
