The Corrupt Blog Post

Not corrupt in a Donald Trump kind of nonsense way. This is a different kind of mangled nonsense.

Yesterday I spent three hours writing a very interesting and amusing blog post, it also contained one very silly photo and three very pretty ones.

All that work and it disappeared when I hit save. A final save before “Publish” that never happened. This was a new experience for me, faithful Open Live Writer had been auto-saving in the background throughout, till the point of no return. The worst that´s ever happened before is when it´s forgotten where it originally saved a file on my hard drive. Always given me the chance to copy / paste and create a new file, a problem easily solved. Even that´s only ever happened on four occasions. Not this time though. 

Takes a lot to make me angry, but the house was filled with swear words and Dave wore a sympathetic face. Later on I worked out where the file was stored, and this is what it looks like:

We bought a boat remnants 

I can´t “uncorrupt” THAT.

Rant over, I will attempt to recreate the post again. I was on a finger tapping roll at the time so it´s a toss up as to whether the end result will be as good as. A photographic memory would come in handy at the moment, but such a thing is elusive to me.

So I´ve decided to start with key sentences and take it from there. Bummer.

The heading was “We Bought A New Boat.”

Well there´s something for you to ponder on while I piece together my jigsaw of content.

  1. Dang! How frustrating! I hope you can re-create it to your satisfaction (or at least to your resigned acceptance–lol). Meanwhile I’m stalled on my research paper and blaming it on being sick. Hahaha–anything for an excuse!

  2. Sounds like you’re having about as much luck as me, another downer that same day was dropping my glasses on the floor and the left side fell off. I mean would you believe it, now I’ve only got one eye that works!

  3. Oh Susan, that “boat we bought” falls slightly short of the truth, it´s complicated!! Will try and RE FINISH it today, but we´re off out to buy some Christmas decorations for humans this aft. Going to a rock concert down at the beach on Friday, everyone´s getting dressed up for the occasion. Might have to buy a red handbag too. Ho Ho Ho!
