Read Thread: Am I Drunk?
I doubt I was editing for more than 30 minutes. More like 20 minutes.

not that I know of. I was only on my email, fb, and AQ this evening.
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.
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.
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.
I got the clue completed this morning but I just did tiny portions of the update at a time and saved. I had no problems at all doing it this way. Box is listed and I'm happy. Maybe it was the wine?
More information please!!
I use Ubuntu Linux so I use Déjà Dup Backup Tool. I have it set to do incremental backups (backs up changes) every day. It also does a full backup every two weeks.
Since most of you use MS Windows, I looked up Five Best Windows Backup Tools. Kim Komando also has some good recommendations, like this one.
And here are some programs for Macintosh users.
