    Write your rant in a text editor and copy it, that's what I do usually

    If only applications would auto-save every X minutes/etc...

    Or like Facebook appears to do, every single character..

    Or at least, it seems to be sending every single character away someplace !

    Just doesn't then give it back to you when you want it !

    Though in Windows its a crapshoot as that only works 99.9% of the time..

    The trick then is to find a 100% reliable text editor that doesn't crash !

    I remember WordStar was hard to break.. (Never did break it !)

    It was probably too long anyway and you'd have to end up editing it and replacing all the two with 2's and and's with &'s to fit it into the space allowed..

    It's like being back in time to early 1980's !

    Though by the mid 80's, you was allowed 2,000 characters in a message. (At least in the system I wrote.) and towards the end of the 80's, 65,535 characters !

    You'd think by now, it would a million !
