RIP – post of early 2007

Why do things disapear. You type, you type, you type. Close the window. Realize you didn’t hit command “S”. Gone. Where does that text actually go in WordPress? Why if you don’t save the post, it does not automatically save it, if you happen to navigate away, arriving back to said page as the closings of tabs consume your fingerly fury. Form does not equal function for an artist using wordpress. When I write by hand I do not need to think of saving such. When written upon pixels, memory is but a mistake away.

The lines are gone that once were written.

-REST IN PEACE-
post of early 2007

you arrose out of tears for fears
that seem somehow forgotton now
a mere semblance of your former self.

  1. I seem to have a parallel problem. I can’t seem to get the words I’ve written by hand into the computer in the first place. I’ve been wanting to post for days, but have not been able to type in what I’ve already written.

    My condolences for your lost words. May they somehow inspire someone as they travel through the ether, like ghosts haunting creativity.

    Tony – thank you

    Sometimes I end up scanning or taking a photo of what I wrote by hand on paper and later post it as a graphic image.

  3. Yeah I have been thinking on this karaoke queen and perhaps they just go back to being a current of electricity in our human and/or computer brains. And maybe that is what haeaven is… currents of ideas, souls, waiting to be ignited – made alive again. :)

  4. I’d reckon autosave will be a new feature in WP 2.1, together with built in spell check.

    Bu tell me, Jessica. Was the post you lost better than the one it generated? I enjoyed this one, you see…

  5. There is nothing more frustrating than loosing something you have written. I normally write in MS Word, cut and paste it through Notepad to take off all of the stupid tags and publish it.

  6. and then sometimes you realize there are no accidents in life, that certain thoughts are best remained unwritten. but i’d still hate to lose a post at anytime .

  8. TDH – I’ve installed the google tool bar for spell checking – need to remember to use it more ;). I am actually particlular to this one. The one that was lost was about a dying piece of bamboo – a poem. The images I have and will post without the poem as I wrote it on the fly. I’m glad you liked this post. Thank you.

    range – I write sometimes in TextEdit on mac. Then sometimes in the Mail software for emails then do the copy paste thing. This time I didn’t do either.

    Beautifully written poppycock. I was angry at losing the post for a small time. The anger passed as I wrote out this post.
