GUEST,DWR IMPORTANT--about lost posts-to save them (46) RE: IMPORTANT--about lost posts-to save them 29 Jul 09

I think those are good suggestions from Sandra and Geoff. I have used variations of both those methods along the way.

The email (I use gmail) save that Sandra suggests dumps the information into the draft file where it is both searchable and sendable, just in case I want to send it to someone later. This is an especially good method when repeatedly listening to a song while trying to decipher the lyrics. It is also quite easy to add the bold, italics and other html to see what it will look like in Mudcat. Of course, you have to add the actual html later, but still it helps you to see what things will look like before making your final copy.

I sometimes use Geoff's method of dumping a notepad work in progess on the desktop. As he does, I use it for other things as well, and change/add/subtract as needed.
