Blogging Oops!

I have a separaoopste tab in my browser where I compose Link Dumps.  As the day or days go by I add links to that post in that tab.  Sometimes I use things that people have sent me.  After I add a link to the post I usually delete their email so I don’t increase my current number of emails in my inbox which stands at 22,120. Yeah, I know, I need to thin the herd a bit.  Anyway, when I feel I have enough posts I’ll set it to Publish.  I had the Link Dump all ready to post last night and decided I’d do it first thing this morning.  Overnight my computer rebooted to install some update I guess, and I lost about half of the items in the Link Dump.  I couldn’t remember what they were, but surely they were the best links ever and now they’re lost forever.  

Overnight my computer rebooted to install some update I guess, and I lost about half of the items in the Link Dump.  I couldn’t remember what they were, but surely they were the best links ever and now they’re lost forever.  So, if you sent me something that was the best thing ever and don’t see it posted, that’s why.

Life goes on.

  1. if your browser has it you could also try the menu option History/Restore Previous Session or call up the history and filter for the results from yesterday.

    • I use Chrome and I don’t see anything in History except pages I’ve been to. I don’t see a Restore function.
      But thanks.

      • Ctl + shift + t will restore any closed tab in Chrome as long as you don’t clear the history (or have it set to clear upon re-boot).

        • I didn’t think that would work after closing Chrome…. or a reboot. I Reopen Closed Tabs all the time during the day.

  2. It being Halloween I suggest a magic potion, preferably one using eye of newt. Brew the potion, pour it on your computer, and the words will magically reappear.

    This is one of the things that bugs me about Windows 10. Seems like it’s constantly updating. I also like to keep tabs open and programs running when I hibernate my computer so I can pick up right where I left off. At night, the computer will wake up and reboot, shutting everything down. At least I’ve gotten good at saving my data, just hate having to reopen all my programs and reload all the files.
