    I spent the entire #@$%ing day yesterday finishing my secondary to COMP, saving it all the while to my hard drive and sent a copy home. Of course, I tried printing it before saving it, but the window that popped up to print did not allow me to access the actual print button. Nice. So, I figured I'd send a copy home and print it there.

    Guess what!?!? When I went home to open up the mail, the application was there, but there wasn't any text!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, when I came back to work to see if there was anything in my sent box, there wasn't any text!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought, maybe, just maybe COMP had the foresight to have something built in to the app that would save it automatically. NO!!!!!!!

    Let me start off by saying I totally feel for you - I've been there a few times.

    Now, I *always* write secondary essays using a WP with autosave q 5 min, then cut and paste into the secondary if it allows me to, or modify the margins of the essay to fit the preprinted secondaries' margins.

    All is not lost - you've already written them, now recall and edit on the fly. You have another chance at polishing your work before submission.

    Thanks for the positive encouragement, Tae, who is not the same Tae that I went to pod school with.

    One day, when I have some time, I'm going to create a new product (assuming no one has invented this yet).

    It's a block of a thin metal shaped like a computer, and painted to look like one. It's only use will be to take the brunt of your anger when you beat the crap outta it with a bat (optional $35). However it will be made so that it can take plenty of heavy whacks before its bent completely out of shape. For use only in a "computer induced psychotic rage" emergency.
