There are times when I get more than a little pissed off with this site.
Today is a typical example.
I wrote a long piece. It was a damned good piece. It was funny, incisive and extremely well written. It ran to about five hundred words.
I proof read it several times [not that that stops the odd error getting through] and hit the Publish button.
I then went off to attend to some pressing matters.
All that happened a couple of hours ago. I just went in to check the site and the fucking post isn't there. I don't know where it went to but it didn't go where it was supposed to go. I immediately went into the engine room to check if it had been saved as a draft – it had, but there was no content. Fuck! I then went to see if there were any of those auto-save things. There were indeed, and all had blank content.
So my work of brilliance is forever consigned to that area of cyberspace that has no name.
There's no point in rewriting the whole thing as these flashes of brilliance are a rare moment in a morass of banality.
