I wrote probably my longest entry ever a couple of hours ago, on the rather uninteresting subject of how I can never get to sleep on Thursday nights due to (probably) excess adrenaline caused by playing badminton. However, when I pressed Publish now, I got the dreaded blogbuilder error message page. You know the one, with what looks like the world's largest exception error. Worse, I realised that, unlike all my recent entries, I had forgotten to copy this one beforehand, on the foolish assumption that, should anything go wrong, I could just press the Back button. Oh how naive of me.

Anyway, it is sufficive to say that I don't have the willpower to type it all out again, and thus I will instead leave you with a small homage to the only good Christmas song ever, Fairytale of New York.

"When you first took my hand on a cold Christmas Eve, you promised me Broadband was waiting for me"

Merry Christmas to everyone, except for blogbuilder, which can go rot in a corner. (No offence to the guys who created it, I know you do a good job, but it can just be so goddam annoying sometimes.)

  1. Firefox is good for writing blog entries even if you don't use it for anything else because it is much better at saving blog text when you press back.

    Also: select all, Ctrl + v.

  2. Ctrl + v = paste…so wouldn't be very good for copying ;-)
    Yes, I normally copy my entries first, but this one was so long that I was just relieved to finish it and I hit publish straight away. Dammit.

  3. I just hit "Save for Later" after every paragraph then press "Back To Editing" on the next page. However actually remembering to do that is the key to my plan ;)

  4. I think you can get the same error if you do that, too…
