Kinda like the time I put 110 hours into Final Fantasy 12 (Hey, I just left it on and came back to it randomly), and then the power went out. For a second. While that was my fault, it's cool. I just re-played it. I was failing anyways...


Just think - you leaving that on contributed 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002% to global warming. I hope you're happy destroying the world.


Well then, that's 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002%
energy that went to a better place. RIP, Energy. You've earned it!

Better that that 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002%
energy was used to power FF12 rather than slave labor!



Very productive, sir.

What would you do or feel if after working on something all day and something happen to it were its just gone?
Lets say you were doing something online for school, job or here on CR and work hard on your online project and you go to save and your computer starts acting up and your hard work did not save and most of it is gone. What or how you feel?
Has it happen to you before? What did you do the 1st time it happen?


This used to fill me with searing, white-hot rage. However, as I've grown older, I grown to realize that sometimes shi- happens, and what's done is done. Occasionally, there are ways of retrieving your work in whole or in part, but many times this isn't the case. I've learned to just accept that the hours I poured into that work are just gone, heave a sigh, and then start over. The upside is that your work usually goes faster the second time since you know exactly what you need to do.

I would totally filled with rage, cussing and such. And sometimes swear that I will do it tommorow or maybe never but in reality, I will do it 3 hours later, after I'm done being mad

When you train for 6months day in day out for a tournament then bust your hamstring and have to pull out.

I hated everything...

That happened to me once.
I was writing this really nice thing about my friend.
Normally I'm stuck on what to say.
I clicked the backspace because I made a spelling mistake.
And I took me back to my last page.
I broke my keyboard.

If you consider work on a computer real work that a laugh by it's self. Not to save your work as you go is very,very dumb.

I was finalising my project report on a computer and suddenly my house suffered a power knockout and I'd forgotten to save my work. As a result, I was fustrated and lost motivation to redo everything at that time..

I know that feeling far too much. In particular, there was a weekend when I sat down on my old laptop and wrote a novella before the start of monday. Unfortunately for me the USB stick died on me halfway through the writing process. Backup copy #1 was now gone. So, as I finished writing, I uploaded it to my e-mail in a hurry. Came home later on monday to turn on my laptop, and the hard drive died. Looked at my e-mail, and in my fatigued state, I uploaded the wrong document. Backup #2 died. Original gone. Got a new laptop later that week. I have a few more USB sticks around the house, and save a copy in the e-mail that I use for my manuscripts.

It's happened to me many, many times in my life. I've literally lost everything in my life - besides my job, and had to start from scratch on the cold floor of an apartment with just a blanket. I've learned to cope and not be selfish or covet things. However, I have also learned that many people do not know how to do this so it is best to avoid confrontation with those who demand, yell, and throw fits over the smallest things in their life. I worked customer service at a department store when I was younger, and thinking back on it makes me realize just how petty people can be.

This is why knowledge is power. Even if everything physical is removed from your life you still have your knowledge to start again.

After several occurrences of this in my life, I've learned that it's always good to have a hard copy of everything you draw/write, even if it's not touched up or edited. Computers are fickle creatures, and may decide to piss you off at any moment. Honestly, I believe that relying on computers is in itself a silly concept, as humans created computers. So for those of you who lost computer data, I recommend writing your reports and such in a notebook before typing them up.
