Sometimes there is nothing but frustration with a computer.

Last night it ate my sermon! 

Maybe I was just too tired but I accidentally hit the don’t save changes button when it asked.

I guess it is not really the fault of the computer – operator error.  In other words, "How could I have been so dumb?"

So finally, I went to bed very late with the realization that I was not going to remember how to say the  things I had seemed to put down on "paper" so clearly and actually slept.  Till 4 am. 

Now it is 6 and I have rewritten it and saved it.  Now comes going over it.  Revising.  But at least I have the essence of what I need to say saved!

And I am going back to bed to sleep.

  1. I know you’ve rewritten it now, but I wonder if there is a temporary backup file saved somewhere on your computer. If you use Word, it should tell you where those files are located under tools–>options–>file locations.

    I don’t know if it keeps a backup if you hit “don’t save”, though.

    Marc, That is what I was hoping but I could not find it. I think I hit the don’t save the changes button. Stupid computer – it did what I asked!
