So.... Skyfloating is dead. I'll bet it was a truly BEAUTIFUL ion cloud, lots of pretty colors.

Now, the question remains WHY was he attempting 'escape'. From what? If I were on the Yydryl crew, I'd be searching under my seat for bombs...

I think Sky wanted just to stay closer to Betelgeuse. Now he will... forever.

Dang it,

I had written half a dialogue when I wanted to confirm what someone else had posted - I went back to "myats" and clicked on the thread again, thinking another window would pop open, instead it took my page and opened it!

uuggghh, frustrating.

anybody else have that happen?

Dang it!

How do you make sure to save as you go? is there a way to do that?

Yeah this has happened to me a few times. I now usually use more than one tab on my browser. One to fact check the thread and one to write my post.

But I still mess up sometimes


As for saving, I don't think it can be done in the browser but you could copy paste to a word processor....But you probably already know that.

Having had this issue with other threads and my ramblings erased into the ATS ether, I always write in word & copy and paste.

Just how this alien rolls.

I ALWAYS type everything into notepad, BB Code and all. Then, when it's ready to go, I just copy/paste it in and hit 'post'

Never lose anything that way.

I use Mozilla Firefox and open them in separate tabs, so I can switch back and forth. The newest version of Internet Explorer also has a "tabbed" interface, allowing the same thing. If you're using Windows as an operating system, that's probably an option.

Also, I occaisionally "copy" what I've typed to the clipboard, so that it's already in memory, ready to paste wherever.

I write for the most part in word and the do several minor edits (formatting and selected word choice changes) in the thread pane. Then I periodically copy and past between the two, until I'm done.

It's a laborious process for me, but I tend to write with a million distractions, so my approach may not be the most efficient, but it works for me.

WOW, THANK YOU Everybody!!!

You have been awesome in your responses.

I appreciate it completely!

I will do it in word for now on. I was going to post something earlier, but had gotten frustrated when I lost the whole thing. So I will rework it tomorrow.

Thank you Again!!!

Hi everyone,

I sent a u2u to my Captain and to Masqua, just saying im going to take a "time out" for a while.

Now we are back on Earth, my Captain is going reassign / transfer me to another ship or mission. The pace here is fast / intense and at the moment I just dont have the time to be involved.

As I said to my Captain (via u2u) its not fair to other writers to keep my character in the story if im not posting.

Its been great and I will return (at some point lol) but for now thats it for me.

Have fun guys,

JQ.
