More than 1 hour of typing! Matt if you would be sitting next to me I would slap you at the moment! :evil: :evil:


It is because of this that I write the trip report in a word document first so that I have a backup!

Hit the back button, highlight the text, right-click, and copy. That's worked for me before.

I always save my text in some fashion before hitting submit. Not trying to sound condescending, just giving advice that I know works.

For me it is better to write up the text in a Word document anyway so I can use spell check. The side effect is that if submitting it fails all I have lost is some copy/pasting.

Quit using internet explorer or those other lame browsers! Trust me, I've lost hours of work in the past (at least two trip reports) which I was using internet explorer. Now that I use firefox, even when the page doesn't work, I click back and have all my text. A friend of mine write up a "side kick" trip report with my Mount Shuksan attempt which his story was more epic than mine, and his trip report was lost the same way as yours. So my lesson was to either use notepad/word or use a browser that supports backups when you hit back. 8) I really do feel for you, it is really frustrating. Especially when that was all the "SP" time you had when life is busy.

So it's SP's fault, and Matt's in particular, that you don't save your work or do it all beforehand? First you complained about your camera, then about page standards, and now this.

Another suggestion: I do a lot of my work as a draft in Gmail. It auto-saves as I go. No worries about losing material unless you manage to delete the draft.

Not only do I save everything in text files but I compulsively hit the "save" shortcut every 5 words or so. :D

Where did i complain about my camera?
I don't have a camera, I use my cellphone as a camera and just take pics for my mother in belgium so she knows what i'm doing here ...


I have never experienced the problems you have. It seems you would rather complain and blame than use available solutions that many others use and recommend. If that floats your boat, so be it.

And yes, it was your cell phone camera you complained about, claiming it took crappy pictures that weren't good enough to upload. Again, no one's problem but yours.

By the way, it's "dammit" or "damn it." :wink:
