I have learned to save every few minutes...and I do mean just a few.  It makes such a difference knowing that my work won't disappear if something goes wrong.

Hit that save button a lot. I had one crash on me the other day. I was bummed out, but thankfully able to retrieve it. I'm not really sure how I managed that, or I would share that with you.

Joe,  For some reason, when I've tried composing directly onto Activerain,  the longer my posts run the SLOOOOOOWWWWEERRRR my typing gets. So I now compose in Word. ALL my tweets, facebook and blog posts are written in word. This also allows me to check my word counts very easily, grammar, spell check, etc. I just cut and paste when ready to pull the publishing trigger.

It is really annoying when it happens. But if is utube video only, it is quite easy to embed that link again. While writing directly in the Rain, press ''save'' often.

That happens from time to time.  We do not get a refund for our efforts. 

Best practice is to save the code so you have somewhere other than in an AR post.
