Many people have been known to quote Blaise Pascal:

"I have made this letter longer than usual because I lack the time to make it shorter."

In this month's Answer Guy, the Answer Guy himself learns some solid lessons in recovery planning. In the case of his editor, to hit the Save key combination every once in a while. You never know when you're accidentally going to hit the key assigned to "quit this session without prompting". Thus

"I have made this blurb shorter than usual because I lack the time do it over."

Sorry folks! And I wouldn't be the Answer Guy if I didn't have the answer for this. Emacs users, make sure to turn auto-save-mode on for your important buffers before you get rolling, amd set your auto-save-interval to something other than NIL. Screen users, make sure to update -- the newer versions now ask before completely shutting down screen itself. And try not to use a keyboard with \ too close to ] so you're less likely to backwack that fascinating article you were writing.
