I had a whole post typed out.
Picked out the perfect picture.
Ran Spell-check on it.
A few corrections made.
Debated over colors, italics and sizes.
Previewed and decided I liked it.
Clicked Add.
....waited some more....
....still waiting....

Until the following message appears:

FriendFinder is currently undergoing hardware upgrades and refuses to post the long blog entry that you just spent so much time on. Better yet, we've deleted it and won't even let you click the Back button so that you can copy and save it to post at a later date. We are sadistic bastards and get off on your helpless frustration at the deletion of your post...and by the way, you owe us your monthly membership fees, so pay the fuck up!

Ok, so maybe not in those exact words...

Yeah. I've started saving them into Word before I post. Sigh.

Was it more nakey pics?

What is it with you and nakey pics????

No, it wasn't...but the new picture on my IM is....

Something related to that happened on my first attempt at posting your semi belated birthday card comment in the previous post. Had to make up again from scratch a few minutes ago.

I always think I've learned my lesson about making backups of what i'm posting here but yet I still really haven't!

One of these days though I swear I will learn that ! (I hope)

PS. Did you ever see the Twyla Tharp /Billy Joel's Music played live with amazing choreography extravaganza thing? It looked to be some top class dancing. Was it Moviing Out or something like that? I wanted to see it but didn't. Silly me.


curious082385 replies on 8/25/2006 3:22 am:
I'm the same way. I've had enough disappear that you really would think I had learned to save them by now....but no!

I have not lost any posts but they are keeping any responses from sticking.

curious082385 replies on 8/25/2006 3:22 am:
I know, same here. Annoying isn't it?

Happened to me too

I copy before I post it, just in case.

i always write on a wordpad then copy it in order to post...
i might add it's probably one of the very few times that i do the smart thing!

Am I the only one around here who actually writes her posts in the post box????

I know your frustration all too well; more lately than a few months ago. Dont feel bad! I was accused of using someone else's pic when she went to click onto her blog. "Welcome to steamyandsexy's future blog"-and right next to it, was my pic! This AND waiting forever for one page to load.among a million other "glitches." I wasnt even able to post anything on my own blog after I waited and waited for hours to get to my blog!

This was the sites fault and totally beyond my control and this particular member SWEARS I stole her pic, she even made 3 posts all about me stealing her pics! I had nothing to do with that! I ended up getting so aggravated by it, I called the site on the phone,told the abuse dept. about it and they finally removed those 3 posts in her blog about me and what SHE wanted to believe and they also sent her an email telling her to knock it off..(in so many words) and that it was a glitch.
Sorry for rambling.............. I feel better now! LOL

curious082385 replies on 8/25/2006 3:26 am:
It's ok, rant away!
The updates are supposed to make things easier around here...not aggravate everyone!

Everything gets put in word first. Got board so I can instert the tags froma drop downs and some other things...LOL

But sometimes having to rewrite something gives you the chance to distill your words...for me It just wrecks the insparation...


curious082385 replies on 8/25/2006 3:27 am:
Yeah, it just killed the inspiration last night. On a short post or something that I can easily re-write, I will if it is lost, but last nights was long and detailed and I just couldn't make myself re-do it with the same flair as the first draft.

I just have one word for you ... notepad. Better than Word because it doesn't use any weird formatting characters.

Hey I know that one... many of my posts have gone off into the ether. Its even better when they do that and they loose the post AND your whole profile. I've had that happen three times.

Oh's done that to me a few times...most annoying.
