    I haven't lost anything yet but for a while when I first signed on this morning, it was going v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. It seems to be OK now though.

    I was losing posts too, but my problem was because I was hitting the back button to soon, before it posted and it was lost.

    Happens to me ALL the time...
    1) only when I put a lot of thought into it
    2) AND when I'm in a hurry

    You HAVE to wait for the "post" process to complete, and actually SEE your post as part of the thread, before you go anywhere else.

    I've only ever lost 2 - once was a power out, once was who knows what.

    I hate waiting. If I put a lot into it, I type it into Word first then cut and paste here... :wink:

    MUCH too organized, Step!
    If I start using "big words" then I paste from the board into Word, to check for spelling... but otherwise its just too much work.

    I'm not organized. Facebook loses my posts a LOT.

    In which case, its "experience". I don't do FB.

    Yeah, you have a point. I think the problem is, I do most of my posts from work, where the network is... Um... SLOW. And fb is graphics intensive.
