What did I do wrong
« on: September 05, 2018, 10:54:55 AM »
I,ve just written an account of my last ratting session  and, just before the last line , the screen froze , the cursor disappeared and then the screen went white . I clicked on the screen again and found I had lost everything i,d written. This is the second time this has happened. What,s going on? Now I have to write the whole bloody thing again  >:(

No idea, Baggy.

Perhaps a rat chewed through a cable ....................
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

If it happens again
I clicked on the screen again and found I had lost everything i,d written.

If that happens again, try hitting the 'back page' button (arrow pointing west in the top left of your screen) and sometimes you'll retrieve what you've typed. ;)....but sometimes, you won't be so lucky!! :(

It was probably caused by a break in your internet connection....I've experienced it many times in the past before I moved my wireless router to a better position.

Why would you lose your writings if you are suddenly offline, are you using google docs to write your documents instead of microsoft word or some other offline application?

Maybe get in the habit of hitting control+a then control+c to copy all of your text into your clipboard every once in a while.
