Today, I took a shower after I finished typing an important essay I've been working on for days. My computer illiterate mum shut the computer down when I was gone, without saving a thing. When I confronted her, she yelled at me for "wasting electricity". FML

first: who the hell works on something for DAYS without saving it? yes, you were wasting electricity if you really left the computer on that long, and yes, you're a dumbass for not saving something that took you "days" to work on.
second: if your mother is computer illiterate, how did she shut the computer off? i would consider my mom computer illiterate, mostly because she can't turn the computer on or off.
third: ALWAYS SAVE YOUR WORK. constantly. like after every third sentence or something.

I say save your work every paragraph, and if you were using Windows Vista or Windows XP it would stay on until you click either "Don't Save" or "Save" if you haven't saved it. She either intentionally turned off her computer with out saving... OR turned it off wrong (cause those of you who don't know, always shut your computer down by the "shutdown" button and not the button on the tower) which in this case... she would be computer illiterate.

I am stunned that anyone would work on something important and not save it and have autosave functions active and have multiple copies of the work backed up.


Tough lesson, eh?

#188, yes, most people do account for the possibility that you never know when something could happen that causes you to lose your unsaved work. By saving frequently. You'd have to be an idiot not to.

OP deserves it for not saving when he left the room...I've learned to consistently save when working on the computer. that way I don't have to worry about this kind of crap happening. on the the other hand....FHL cuz that reappy does suck even if he was stupid enough not to save.

really, an honest mistake? if ur stupid enough to leave something that important without saving it, you are VERY stupid. i save every paragraph or so, plus whenever i leave to avoid stuff like this...

Um, every ten words? Considering I type over 100 words a minute, I suppose I should be saving every six seconds? That's ridiculous and so are you. Maybe every paragraph but ... come on. How slow do you type?!

That's what you get for leaving the computer without saving. It's one thing for the computer to crash while you're using it, but to finish your paper and leave the computer? Come on now.
