    Arrrgghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    I was writing a great Wiki page for Count Strahd Von Zarovich. I had it all nearly done, and my browser gave out on me! I even uploaded a graphic from House on Gryphon Hill to represent Strahd, and I had nearly everything perfect.

    This is a nightmare. 4 hours of work, down the tubes!! ACK!

    Yeah, I felt rather . . . . let down. I'm glad you understand.

    Happens to me quite often for work wikis. I have learnt to submit often or write the first complete draft as a file, cut'n'paste it into the wiki, submit it, then used other edits to fix the links etc. Sometimes I can recover part of the lost text from the Clipboard/Copy'n'paste memory or Firefox might come back with a memory of the edit screen.

    I constantly use Cut-and-paste (Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V) and I also keep a text document of my most important files. I don't trust browsers, even with my newly three-times faster connection speed

    Okay, I added the page. I have a little problem with his statistics, however. It's in a Domain box. So, it's up to you wikimoderators to edit it as you see fit to make his statistics show up.
