bbubble-7960566Greetings from Jim Dennis

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.
