I decided yesterday that since AOL is marginally more stable than Firefox for me these days, I would compose all of my blog entries in AOL Mail and use the Blog-By-Mail feature of Blogger to post new entries. Then I would open Firefox and use it to edit the post and add links.

I was working on a longish post in AOL Mail today when I watched Firefox crash. Fine, I thought, I'm not there.

Fifteen minutes later, as I was adding the finishing touches to the post, AOL winked out of existence. Not even so much as a "Goodbye". Just there typing away one second, and gone without a trace the next. Along with my entire post.

Screw it. I'll rewrite it in the morning, when it's cooler and things are less likely to crash. In the future I think I'll print my entries in block capitals by hand and scan them into AOL Mail using Optical Character Recognition software, then e-mail the entry to Blogger, then use Firefox to edit it. Yeah, that should work.

If only my scanner didn't crash so much.
