I had been working on a post for a few days, and finally yesterday I was ready to publish.
I usually compose my posts in another platform and then when I’m ready to publish I copy & paste them into WordPress.
Only this time I did Ctrl-X instead of Ctrl-C. I was in a hurry. I was distracted. I had some trouble getting the post to preview in WordPress. Something else required my attention for the briefest of moments…during which I put something else on my clipboard.
Original clipboard contents: gone.
WordPress: no record of post.
Document in original platform: autosaved (without the content).
Ctrl-Z to bring back the missing text: fail.
And now I’m struggling just a little bit about whether to start over or just screw it all and move on.
