This week Blogger introduced an "autosave" feature, automatically backing up drafts of posts every minute or so. You can also click the "save now" button manually to save drafts.
I just concluded writing a new immigration-related post and hit "save now" to save the draft, then clicked on "edit" in order to check that all the links were good.
What I found when I clicked edit was that none of my post had been saved, other than the headline and the subject link. The entire -- lengthy -- post was completely blank.
Has anyone else had this happen? Is this a glitch related to the new automatic save feature?
I found a post by someone who had the identical experience: she had manually saved the post and it disappeared. I've also been having the problem mentioned at this site, that comments are disabled until I manually go in and correct it.
I guess from now on I'm going to copy my posts into Word until they're safely posted...
For now, I leave you with just one story, at the subject link, that President Bush removed from the pending immigration bill the provision that illegal immigrants pay their back taxes.
Read it and weep.
I'm thinking of becoming an illegal alien. It certainly seems more profitable than the old-fashioned principles of working hard, following the laws, and paying one's taxes.
