My previous post just disappeared. The comments on it remain. Crap.
That's just bizarre. I posted it at 5:49, edited it a couple times, and then went to watch TV. It was up long enough for Dawn to comment on it at about 10:30. Then at 11:00 when I was done watching Without A Trace it was gone. *poof* I did NOT delete it - I wasn't even near my computer at the time. No, I don't have a backup copy.
I guess the moral to the story is to write and save everything offline. How extremely annoying!!
