Only slept a few hours last night.
Because I was up late working.
Lost most of it today. 100+ pages of editing work, gone. My fault, of course. Noclobber? Who needs noclobber? I know what I'm doing.
No I don't. Noclobber is now set.
I thought the ~ Emacs backup file would come through for me. No such luck. Did you know that that backup file is only created at the start of each new session, not at the time of each save? I didn't. Now I do. If you are reading the printed documentation, make sure you turn the page. I didn't.
C-u C-x C-s is the command to basically begin a new session as far as the backup save is concerned. This command is now tatooed on my body.
Also, Starbucks bought up all of the advertising space in the Downtown Crossing T station. It's like being in a funhouse with mirrors on the walls everywhere, only they're not mirrors, they're posters of gigantic coffee drinks with instructions to the children of America on how to order them, and they're not fun and they certainly won't find their way to my house. But seriously, this is the most ads in the smallest space that I have ever seen in my life. Guess they're playing Yankees to the Dunkin' Donuts Sox.
Nothing like having to go back and redo work you've already done. It's good for the soul, it's good for the soul, it's good...
