The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
Forum posts aren't a real problem - though questions and answers would be nice to auto save as they can take quite some time to type - so I wouldn't feel too guilty.
Most of the time I nearly lose forum stuff is when I get "we tried three times ... too busy" - and mostly then you can still copy the typed text anyway.
You lot do a good job, and don't get enough praise for the effort you do put in.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
My only problem with the CP article editor is that is saves too much!
Sometimes I only click "Edit my article" to copy/paste some HTML, and all of a sudden it tells me I have a new draft. I'm never sure if I accidentally did a (back)space somewhere or if something got changed automatically or whatever. Anyway, easy to fix as I can just delete that draft.
When I type anything anywhere on CP and I try to navigate to another page or close the page it gives me a warning.
So I guess no troubles here on CP, and the only reason I'm complaining about WordPress is because you spoiled me to much
I always use NotePad++ to save a temp copy of the post I'm working on, in case I lose my mobile (and slightly unreliable) connection. Then, if I need to, I can always just copy and paste back to the post. As long as I step back as soon as I hit Ctrl+V, because my copied text to NP++ is now full of "pre" tags around code, which mysteriously get re-tagged, and escaped, if I don't change the "Paste as" dialogue.

Notepad++ saves your files (at least it does for me). If I create a new document using Notepad++, then close Notepad++, then turn off my computer, then take a looong vacation, then turn on my computer again and open Notepad++ my newly created, unsaved document is still there

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]
but it's autosave was buggy, and would often crash the app when autosaving and make sure you lost everything automatically
That wasn't a bug, it's a feature!
When coding I don't mind losing a bit of work. You'll just do it again except this time you know what to do and it might be prettier now that you know up front (although I once lost a good day of work, that was a bit much...). But writing for a blog (or anything else), that's just a drag!
Sorry for your loss. Losing an hours work really sucks.
It reminded me of working in VS6 on Windows ME. (when I got my first laptop after school) The system was liable to crash at any time. After losing a few hours of work in the first month, I promptly bought Win2K and things were good...so good that I skipped XP altogether!
Well, all of those nice arguments are pretty much nullified by the presence of haggis!
