doh... typed out a reply.... had an idea... went to google it... lost my reply :-(
Way off topic, but if you use firefox for your browser, stop what you're doing and go grab a plugin/addon called "Lazarus: Form Recovery". I cannot tell you how many times I've been writing an email, filling out a form, posting a VERY LONG forum reply, just to have the site act up, my internet go out, get logged out.. whatever...just to find that when I can get back to the page, all my typing is gone.
Lazarus saves what you're typing, and it could be anything, a form or just a box, it's smart enough to auto save everything you type on a page. All you have to do is right click, select Recover, and all your typing comes right back. I highly recommend getting it to prevent loosing your replies again.
From their homepage:
Ever had one of those “oh $*#@” moments when you've finally finished filling out a long form, and hit submit only to see an error message? And when you hit the back button, the form was blank... If so, you know you need Lazarus. And if not, you have a chance to install Lazarus before disaster strikes!
