I am about to have a fit. I just typed a big long message, hit the backspace key and it disappeared What the h--- happened. ? Any chance of getting it back??

I have learned to highlight and copy my messages before I hit the back button.
That way if it disappears I can just paste it back in.
It took me a few long very astute and intelligent messages before I learned this.
I could not help but think how much I had put into them only to lose them. LOL
Just remember "highlight, copy and save".

Most of the time I type it out on outlook express and then copy and paste it here after I spell check it and spend as much time checking it as writing it .
I write " " Degrees by holding down ALT and typing 0176 well if I'm holding alt down and type
the wrong number and hit backspace it'll get rid of a lengthy letter too . Been there done that .

Sorry, but this software has eaten more than a dozen of my posts over the years...

If you are goint to write a long post, do it offline in a program like Word or Notepad and then cut and paste it in the box here when you have it finished...

That is the safest way...

There's a low down Varmint hangs around this and another board that steals em, tha longer'n more elegant, tha more apt He's gonna do it. We calls'm tha "POOF PIRATE". Your typin along and almost done or just mabe startin ta hit post and POOF,it's gone. None of Us ever seen tha onery critter. up clost anyways. Squire Salmoneyes got tha right idee but bein puter iliterate as it is,I don't compree cuttin'n glue daubin. Tried it onct, couldn't get tha sizzers thru tha glass thingie ta cut anything. I hates bein tha onliest one around thats got this here iliterational condition and it pains ta suffer tha shame of it but what tha heck, as Pogo once said "I struggle on, burdened tho I woeful be".

Aptly put, Hogman..have all but quit posting on some forums for that very reason......have put out traps and snares for that illusive poof pirate beast, all to no avail. I am starting to wonder if he, also, is not responsible for stealing my spelling....and even deleting posts, a rogue of a scoundrel, to be sure!! Lengthy posts are not in my interests, either to read, or compose, less opertunity for disapearance! have a good one, R.E.L.
