Rant: Wiping Your Work

I was originally intending to be writing something else right now but – unfortunately – I just managed to erase it all by accidentally clicked the home button in my browser. Gah! Even though WordPress periodically saves your work via JavaScript it seems that you need to explicitly save your work before it actually stores these periodic saves somewhere accessible to the user. (Although it's not in the database either so apparently the "saved at -" message is just plain lying.) Perhaps something to look at?

I also had a pleasant experience last night when I deleted the entire web site for one of the software engineering subjects I'm involved with. Thank God for backups.

Anyway, very annoyed right now. Once I've calmed down I'll return to my original topic of discussion.
