Am I Drunk?

Yesterday and today I tried updating reserved boxes and twice I've had strange things happen. On one of the boxes after I updated the clue and added coloring and clicked on the Preview Clue button I was sent to the "Add a Letterbox" page and all my changes were lost. After this happened twice I decided to update the clue and then click save. That seemed to work and then I went back to the clue to add coloring to the clue. Breaking the process up this way seemed to work well.

Tonight I tried to update the clue on my last reserved box and when I clicked "save" I was taken to the AQ Login screen. Naturally all my work was again lost.

Could this possibly be my crummy computer with Windows 8 that I really hate? Or maybe that half-glass of wine I consumed tonight really went to my head.

Depending on the day you pick, I would have interest in this. I'd have the most chance of getting to go during a weekend, but please pick the day that works best for you. (I may just be dreaming that I could actually get away...have to sweet talk my dear husband.)

I would, however, have to take a detour to get the Doctor Who series!

Thursday this week I could take off and Saturday would work also. I'm not sure what the work week looks like next week. Or what the weather will stir up.

You plan it and we will participate.

Right. silly question. If it's a box, letterboxers will find it. And it's not like Ontario has a shortage of carvers.

I'm already working on it. ;)

You need more than a half glass of wine when working with Windows 8. I dislike it too.

How long were you editing the clue? It sounds like your session was deleted, but AQ isn't supposed to delete sessions for 4 hours. I can't imagine you were editing your clues for that long, but I can't think of any other reason that would cause what you described either. *scratching head*

I doubt I was editing for more than 30 minutes. More like 20 minutes.

I have 1 or 2 from Germany & 1 from Canada. We might have been in the same tracker for the one from Germany. That was fun getting them from other countries.

Georgia, though in real life I exemplify many Midwestern characters. Makes sense, since I have lived in Minnesota all my life and have almost mastered the art of passive-aggressiveness. ;-) The only thing I am most familiar about with Georgia is the Sherwood Films (Flywheel, Facing The Giants, Fireproof, Courageous).

That...THAT was what I needed. Still laughing. Love the "shell" he made himself. Perfect new friend for Ryan. I heard they make weird squealing noises though... hope that won't be a problem for such a quiet one as the Green Tortuga. ; )

This type of thing is why I (most of the time) when I've been editing for a while, I copy the text to a text editor. Then when I lose it I can just paste it back in. If I know I'm going to be taking a while I just write it in a text editor in the first place.
Wow!

Seriously, this idea is almost awesome enough to call for an entirely new type of stashing game, one in which participants need to bring their own laser pointer along for the hunt -- much the way we bring a compass or a geocacher brings a GPSr. Might be doable in daylight, but the SOP is to hunt them only at night. Planters would set up trails to follow, and there's actually several different methods they could use to mark them. One would be tubes attached to trees that a typical penlight laser pointer would slide into. Another would be much smaller tubes attached to trees that you shine the laser through to see where the dot appears when it comes out the other end. You could even come up with things like two small wooden boards nailed together so they look pretty innocuous but you just lay the laser pointer down into the channel formed and it points to the next stop. Or you could screw two eye bolts into the tree and slide the laser pointer into the eyes.

Gee, nobody even responded to this excellent idea! Does that mean everyone stored it away in the back of their minds as something to do in the future?

I agree. Most times that I have a long clue I'll use Word to edit and than finally paste to AQ. Didn't do that this time.

Then when I lose it

Does this mean you experience or have experienced the same sort of problems?

I have experienced this on several web sites, including this one. The longer I worked on it the more likely it is to happen. Save your work.

Which reminds me, have you backed up your computer lately? There are free ways to do so. I've got one.
