It’s all very well having the cloud as your editor. But what happens when it all stops working, bit by bit?
I’ve been writing a review of David Ulansey’s Origins of the Mithraic Mysteries this afternoon. I’d done two chapters of it. I’d chosen to use WordPress to edit the article, here in this blog.
I closed up the editor and went off to make a call. When I came back, I opened it up again to find … most of my work had vanished. Somehow it hadn’t been saved. I’d saved it … but the connection had not processed the save.
I am so angry! I don’t particularly want to dissect Ulansey’s work; but to do it, to do all that work, and all of it in vain … it is utterly infuriating.
I’ve had erratic results from IE for a day or so now. I’ve just turned off Kaspersky anti-virus, and firewall, and suddenly everything works again. I wonder if that is the problem?
Why can’t we have reliable technology?
