Funny story. Yesterday, I had two posts I’d been working on for hours open in my HTML editor (Dreamweaver). One was a long analysis of Cheney’s recent craziness. The other was one of my periodic link posts, where I dump about 20 interesting stories from the last few weeks, with a few sentences on each. After I wrote that one, I closed all those lingering tabs in Firefox.

Then for some reason, our internet goes out, as it does periodically (effing Qwest). I putter off to play with the kids, and the wife … restarts the computer. Except doesn’t know to save my posts.
