I've lost many a manuscript to this exact same phenomenon. I've since learned to compose any "masterpieces" on Word or some other word processor that:
  • A) Periodically saves drafts of my masterpiece in case of power failure, computer meltdown, etc,
  • B) Offers spellchecking features so I don't come across as too dumb and
  • C) Has a built-in thesaurus and other grammatical assistance features so I come across as somewhat intelligent.

After I've written a lengthy piece or something I believe may be of value, I proof-read it before copying and pasting to the Forum for posting. This prevents losing my work due to automatic timeouts and accidental keystrokes and saves a copy on my machine in case something goes wrong.

Too funny... I was writing a response to another thread a few minutes ago and this very event happened. I lost all of the work due to "accidental" keystrokes only this time, I have obtained photographic evidence of the culprit:



Of course, the whole "bad luck" thing about black cats is nonsense but if someone opens the wrapper to a cheese stick with P.K. Poutine within earshot (i.e. always), computer keyboards are nothing more than an access ramp to the treat he knows he'll soon score.

Also, on a PC, you can 'right click' and do undo - sometimes this will bring back your info - if you have accidently hit a keystroke, highlighted all and then hit a keystroke, lord knows how I do it, but I seem to and I am on a computer all day.

I keep the Schnauzer crated when traveling, for her safety, and to keep her from stepping on the multicontrol knob between the seats of the Bimmer. She made it do something strange once.
But then my 92 year old mom has been known to do that as well...no feet, but her hands wander.
