Frakking Auto Save !!!!

OMFG! I just spent the last hour putting together a post and somehow screwed it up by hitting the "insert" key. Then the frakking computer autosaved before I could back out of the page and I lost half the post. Half the post! Gah! It's almost midnight and I am not staying up until one in the morning to get a post up. I'm so annoyed. Where's the wine? Ugh.

you should get Windows Live Writer (it's a free program) you can write all you posts into it and with one click it puts it up on your blog.

The nice thing is you can have multiple drafts going and you can work on them on or off line.. you should check into it!!

Oh thanks! I will.

I had a similar horrifying experience with Excel. You click the wrong place and everything you had done can be f***ed beyond repair.

PS: I am so looking for that program.

I've taken to writing 90 percent of my posts in microsoft word and then just cutting and pasting into blogger.

What a pain. I feel for you.

Charles: that's what I used to do and then upload pics..but in this Windows Live Writer you can upload pics to photobucket or where ever and put them right in what you are writing... work on the post for days if need be.. then you can set the fonts and colors and spellcheck in live writer and then just one click to insert it into your blog or even mulitple blogs!
