Three Times This Week

Three times this week I have lost blogposts! Earlier this week I hand drafted a blogpost on paper, took the sheet to type it up and then misplaced it – probably in a tidy-up. That was a post on issues in theological education and I haven’t had time to revist the topic. On Thursday I […]

Three times this week I have lost blogposts!

Earlier this week I hand drafted a blogpost on paper, took the sheet to type it up and then misplaced it – probably in a tidy-up. That was a post on issues in theological education and I haven’t had time to revist the topic.

On Thursday I drafted a much more coherant set of notes on survivorship bias than the ones I recently posted. As normal, I worked in Write Room, but through a series of brain explosions I cut the text instead of copying, then copying something else it then forgot to undo the cut. The text was lost. The current blogpost is OK, but nowhere near as polished.

Today I was drafting the next roundup of interesting ideas from around the blogosphere. Writing directly into WordPress, the ideas were flowing smoothly -until I hit save and since the internet connection had randomly dropped out (always remember to laugh ironically when people say HK is a high-tech city). Once I had the connection live again, it was clear WordPress had not saved the draft.

It’s been a frustrating week on a score of different levels but this kind of experience, which I’ll admit for me is very rare, has just added to the woes.

That stinks, Fernando! I know how frustrating it is to lose blog posts. I hope you get the time to reformulate those thoughts, so we get to enjoy and be enriched by them at some point.
